With more and more demand for footwear and leather goods, India is booming with job opportunities. Not only India but, there is a lot of demand from rest of the world as well. Unfortunately because of lack of resources, India is not able to full fill the demand from the consumers, therefore ready business is being taken by China which is currently world’s number 1 in manufacturing of leather goods and footwear manufacturing.
The ministry of Commerce is putting in additional investments and efforts in order to foster the industry. One of the major steps is to implement skills so that the quality of the goods manufactured improves along with a fall in the cost of manufacturing.
