All Members of the Council
 

Dear Members,

Sub :   India Leather Show, Spain, March 20-21, 2018

Spain is the 9th largest importer of leather and leather products in the world and 5th largest importer of leather and leather products from India.
Considering the export potential of this important market, the Council had initiated the export promotional activities in Spain since 2005. Thereafter the India Leather Shows in Spain has been organised continuously.

In this series, Council is now organizing the 9th Edition of India Leather Show in Spain during March 20-21, 2018 under the Market Access Initiative (MAI) Scheme. The Council is aiming to mobilize participation of 50 exporters, so as to make it a large show featuring display of wide range of leather & leather Products (Footwear, including Non-Leather Footwear, Footwear Components & Leather Shoe Uppers, Leather Garments, Leather Goods/Accessories, Leather Gloves, Saddlery & Harness and Finished Leather).

The global import of leather and leather products of Spain has increased from US$ 3959.95 million in 2012-13 to US$ 4584.08 million in 2016-17 growing at a CAGR of 3.73%. India’s export of leather and leather products to Spain has increased from US$ 267.17 mn in 2012-13 to US$ 351.26 mn in 2014-15 and slightly declined in 2015-16 and 2016-17 due to the global economic recession. With a view to bring back the positive trend in India’s exports, the Council is organizing the India Leather Show in Spain during March 20-21, 2018.

Council has availed the services of M/s Seven SM, Spain as the Event Management Agency for the event coordination and buyers mobilization in the earlier occasions.
