Leather sector export takes a heat as ‘tanneries relocated to Savar’

The export of leather products is showing a downward trend as many tanners could not yet turn their business around after the relocation of tanneries from the capital’s Hazaribagh area to a leather industrial estate in Savar. The export volume declined by 9.08 percent in the first nine months of the current fiscal year compared to that of the same period in the previous fiscal year.
