The Leather Summit 2023 will be held at the famous Craft Village Cluster in Phu Yen Commune and Thon Than Craft Village, Minh Duc Commune, Ha Noi on Wednesday.

The summit aims to improve the competitiveness of local craft villages and promote the development of the leather and footwear industry in Viet Nam in general.

Although the total export turnover of the industry reached about US$27 billion last year, foreign enterprises still account for over 80 per cent of the revenue compared to Vietnamese enterprises, said Pham Quang Vu Anh, Viet Nam Genus Leather Joint Stock Company and founding member of the Leather Summit.

Improving the competitiveness of Vietnamese enterprises was very important to meet export standards and gain a firm foothold in the home field, he said.

Leather Summit 2023 draws the participation of experts in leather materials from Italy and features more than 250 high-class leather samples. Therefore, craft village production facilities will have chances to expand their connection with manufacturers, access to good sources of materials and seek business opportunities. — VNS
