Vietnamese province expresses interest in new tanning cluster

Provincial authorities in Vietnam have spoken of future plans for the development of leather and footwear production.

In recent comments, senior representatives of the provinces of Ha Tinh and Thai Binh have said plans are in place to increase production of leather shoes and of the leather and other materials required to make them in their parts of the country.

Vietnam’s government has said the footwear and leather sectors a combined target of $18 billion in export revenues this year. In the first three months of 2017, exporters from these sectors brought in $3.1 billion. Industry observers have said gaps in the supply chain locally and a resulting shortfall in raw material are among the principal reasons for manufacturers being behind the target.

Specifically, Hoang Van Quang, director of commerce and industry for the province of Ha Tinh, in the North Central Coast region, has said that “several overseas companies” have expressed their intention to make leather shoes there. To help them, Mr Hoang also said he has asked the government to plan a new leather manufacturing cluster there. He said: “This province is ready to help investors in this sector in terms of infrastructure, but they must show a high level of interest in technology for waste management and for protecting the environment.”
