India Plans Major Push on Australia’s Leather Import Market
Providing a boost to bi-lateral trade relations between Australia & India, the Indian leather industry is planning to significantly increase its profile in Australia and take a greater share of the $1.5 billion import market for leather and leather products.

On August 27th and 28th, some of India’s top leather exporters will host a Business to Business Meet and Expo at the Westin Hotel in Sydney to display a wide range of Indian leather products and footwear available for export to the Australia market. This Business Meet cum Expo is being organised by the Council for Leather Exports, an apex export promotion organisation under India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry, with the support of the Consulate General of India in Sydney.

In 2007 Australia imported $1.5 billion worth of leather and leather products including footwear, up from $941 million in 2002, a growth rate of 10.3% per annum. Of that, only $63 million of leather imports were sourced from India. The Indian leather industry is keen to increase India’s share in Australian imports of leather and leather products.

The business event in Sydney will feature a wide variety of Indian-manufactured footwear, leather garments, leather upholstery and accessories such as wallets, purses, bags, belts, gloves etc.

The Council of Leather Exports has appointed Market Connexions, a division of Multicultural Connexions headquartered in Sydney. Contact Sheba Nandkeolyar, Managing Director - 0421 555 228 or - for more details and for an invitation to attend this event.
