HCMC – The Vietnam-Italy footwear technology center was launched in Binh Duong Province on Wednesday which is expected to help Vietnam’s footwear industry to upgrade production technologies meeting high international standards.

The center was jointly launched by the Italian Trade Commission, the Italian National Association of Manufacturers of Footwear, Leathergoods and Tanning Technologies (ASSOMAC) and the Vietnam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association (LEFASO).

The center, equipped with modern facilities from Italy and Europe, is aimed at promoting the research and development of domestic leather and footwear industry, transferring technologies, providing consulting services and training staff for the domestic sector.

Located under the same roof with the Vietnam footwear research and development center, the new technology center will coordinate with the HCMC Industry and Trade College (HITC) to organize training programs, introduce new trends in the world to footwear designers and manufacturers of Vietnam.

LEFASO vice chairman Diep Thanh Kiet said that Vietnamese footwear industry has great opportunities to enhance trade with Italy, a fashion capital of the world.

In 2016, Vietnamese leather and footwear exports to Italy reached US$380 million, accounting for 8% of total footwear and leather shipments to the EU.

The idea to set up the center was conceived two years ago at a meeting of the Vietnam-Italy Intergovernmental Commission. ASSOMAC, LEFASO, HITC, Italian Trade Commission and PISIE specialized in the technical assistance and training in leather and footwear sector have lent support in the establishment of the center.
