According to the organisers, Shoes & Leather Vietnam was first held in 1999, going on to affirm its position as a prestigious forum for leading leather and footwear producers and suppliers in Vietnam and other countries around the world.
Paolo Lemma, chief representative of the Italian Trade Commission in Vietnam, said almost all companies participating in Shoes & Leather Vietnam have distributors, agents, or representative offices in Vietnam.
These firms are also looking for opportunities to expand their markets in Vietnam and promote cooperation with Vietnamese peers and new potential partners.
Italian firms hope to expand their market in complete production machinery and chemicals used for treating leather and other footwear material, he said.
Vietnam has become the third footwear producer and the second footwear exporter in the world thanks to huge internal and external investments, as well as the tireless efforts made by local footwear firms.
