“Leather is the basis of one of the oldest industries in Bangladesh and plays a significant role in our national economy. The leather sector in Bangladesh is experiencing an annual growth of over 25% and has emerged as the 2nd largest export sector. The government and the leather industry are working together to fulfill their goal of achieving 5 billion USD export by 2020. Japan and EU are now the biggest markets for Bangladeshi footwear and US buyers are increasingly showing interest in sourcing from Bangladesh. DS-Concept will share insights on innovative international working capital solutions with a focus on the leather export market.” Said Soheil Zali, Country Manager of the DS-Concept Bangladesh.
