Zambia’s leather sector with new investment

The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Leather and Leather Products Institute (LLPI) will support selected Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in the local leather sector, making a significant contribution to the growth of the leather industry in Zambia.

Local press in Zambia is quoting Awlachew Ayenew from COMESA-LLPI: “The leather value chain in Zambia has potential to grow given the ever-growing livestock sector in the past years, which has consequently led to the increased production of hides and skins”.
