DERRY - A new study on Uzbekistan's controversial cotton industry says the country still faces significant challenges if it is to achieve the international benchmarks expected by consumers and brands.
Uzbekistan abolished the state-ordered quota system for cotton crops, ending a decades-old arrangement that encouraged forced labour in the industry, earlier this year and hopes international boycotts will soon be lifted.
