‘Trade pacts with China, EU to help leather industry’

Trade agreements with China and European Union will help grow the domestic leather industry as a lot of opportunities exist in those countries for the Indian exporters, says the Chairman of Council for Leather Exports.

“One of our requests is to have trade agreement with China. China is a gold mine as a market,” M Rafeeque Ahmed, Chairman, Council for Leather Exports representing the leather industry, told reporters here.

“People are afraid that China will dominate India, but my feeling is we can go and dominate their market in China. We want the government to have some trade agreements with China,” he said.

Ahmed also sought a similar agreement with European Union as it was one of the largest markets for the leather industry.
