The president of Couromoda emphasizes that organizing these two important congresses in Brazil will give the Brazilian leather and footwear industry an exceptional international visibility. "The fact of our discussing almost jointly the production of footwear and the situation of the leather supply, its most noble raw material, is a pioneering and positive initiative, as the sector integration is vital cope with the challenges of markets that expand and modify at a dramatically fast rate."

"Moreover, the Brazilian leather/ footwear industry will have a unique opportunity to show itself as a major manufacturer and a partner ready to enhance its presence on the world market and reassert itself as the largest producer of leather in the world and largest shoe manufacturer outside Asia."
