Leather processing is the fourth largest exporting sector of Bangladesh. In fact, the Export Policy and Industrial Policy termed 'Leather products and Footwear sector' as one of the highest priority sectors of Bangladesh due to its high value addition and export potentials. This sector exports products like leather shoes, belts, travel bags, wallets and other finished leather products to several international destinations including Italy, France, UK, USA, Belgium, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Poland.
