Africa - Ethiopian minister calls for development strategy


The Ministry of Industry in Ethiopia has emphasised the need for a leather development strategy as part of a wider manufacturing initiative called ‘Let Ethiopia Produce’, writes Footwearbiz.

During a recent workshop, industry minister, Melaku Alebel, highlighted that a communication gap has been hindering the initiative’s effectiveness. To address the challenges faced by the leather sector, government officials, stakeholders, and manufacturers must work together, from local chiefs to federal officials.

The document will play a crucial role in reducing challenges faced by the leather industry, including a shortage of chemicals, the impact of the covid-19 pandemic, quality reduction, foreign currency crunch, reduction of international prices, capacity limitation, and the stagnation of some fabrics.

By utilising the potential of the leather industry and resources effectively, significant outcomes can be achieved, the minister said.
