Minister of Trade and Industry Nevine Gamea has inaugurated the 15th session of Cairo International Leather and Shoes Fair “Cairo Inter Leather”, held at the Cairo International Conference Center on March 11-13, with the participation of 74 Egyptian companies, two from Turkey, one from Italy, in addition to exhibitors from Syria.  

A premier event for international companies seeking opportunities in the Egyptian market, the expo brings together the world’s top leather manufacturers, key exporters and buyers. It showcases various leather products and services, as well as the latest technologies and trends of the industry.

“The Ministry of Trade and Industry is keen to promote leather industries, being one of the most important sectors in the national economy, that helps meet local market needs and creates thousands of jobs throughout its supply chains,” Gamea affirmed.

She noted that Cairo Inter Leather is so significant to Egypt, as it would contribute to increasing the competitiveness of its leather products, boosting their exports to regional and global markets, and achieving integration between production and marketing chains.

The government, Gamea added, seeks to make Egypt a regional and international hub for the manufacture and export of leather products, thanks to the competitive advantages it enjoys in this field, including the abundance of raw materials and availability of technologies and industrial capabilities in the newly-built leather city of Robbiki.

In this respect, the minister pointed out that the third phase of the Robbiki project, to be completed by year-end, will house 100 factories for finished leather products and will be complementary to the tanneries area, with a commercial mall for production requirements and a permanent exhibition.

According to official data, leather exports amounted to $52 million last year, mainly to the markets of: Spain, China, India, Italy and Portugal, at the totals of $14 million, $10 million, $6 million, $5 million, $5 million respectively.
