Pakistan produces very fine quality leather which is recognized worldwide and a good quantity of Finished Leather is also sold locally to the Manufacturers of Leather Garments, Upholstery, Footwear, Gloves and other Leather Goods to enable them to meet their production requirements. PTA’s leather producers have also started exporting fine quality furniture leather (upholstery) to the international market.
In order to boost leather export, the association intends to hold maximum number of International Fairs with the Government approval to get ample export orders. This will certainly enable the leather industry to achieve the export target of about US$ 5 billion within next three years.
To meet the requirements of WTO Leather Industry has to develop quality consciousness by upgrading its products to be competitive in the world market.
There are also challenges to meet the NEQS & Environmental regulations particularly in the wake of WTO regime. The leather industry is prepared to face such challenges with determination and sense of responsibility.
Pakistani tanners have ample potential to move ahead but in order to further develop the leather industry the Government has been requested to provide some due incentives and concessions to PTA’s member exporters to ensure playing field.
