In 2013, the production of clothing for infants and children in Argentina reached 187 million items, showing an increase of 3 percent year-on-year, Debora Giorgi, Minister of Industry, said while inaugurating the 73rd Cemca and 53rd Mabyn fairs.
 
The Cemca is a fair for fashion and leather goods, while Mabyn is a fashion and footwear fair for infants and children.
 
In the last decade, the Argentine footwear sector grew by more than 700 percent, largely due to the active support of the Government’s policy of protecting the domestic market and providing incentives for product design and innovation, the Minister said at the inauguration, according to a statement from the Ministry.
 
“We have an industry of leather goods, footwear and children’s clothing that has design, variety and quality meeting world demand,” the Minister said.
 
Cemca, organized by the Chamber of Leather and Allied Industries Manufacturers (CIMA), is the traditional Argentine fair of leather, leather garments and fashion accessories that has been held uninterruptedly for over 30 years, twice a year in February and August for the presentation of Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer collections, respectively.
 
The latest edition of the exhibition featured more than 100 exhibitors displaying their latest creations in leather clothing, wallets, handbags, belts, travel goods, fittings, bags, small leather goods, briefcases and hats made from the finest materials and produced with the highest technology.
 
Meanwhile, Mabyn, organized by the Argentine Chamber of Infants and Children Apparel (Caybyn), brings together key Argentine producers from the infants and children’s clothing industry. The latest edition saw participation of over 100 manufactures, suppliers and traders from the industry.
 
At a separate meeting with representatives of the leather and footwear industry, Ms. Girogi stressed on sustaining the growth rate of the footwear industry in the past ten years, and called on all employers to “control the values of the raw material and identify changes that may threaten the competitiveness of the product price in the market.”
