The leading trade associations connected to the leather industry in Bangladesh have demanded a 25 percent cash incentive from the government. This demand was put up in a meeting these industry bodies had with the Minister of Industry, Mr Dilip Barua.

They are also demanding implementation of a tripartite deal signed way back in 2003, between the government and the Bangladesh Finished Leather and Leather Goods and Footwear Exporters Association (BFLLFEA) and Bangladesh Tanners Association (BTA).

The industry bodies, made up of leaders from BFLLFEA and BTA also demanded a reduction in interest charges on bank credit and also demanded of the government to set up a central effluent treatment plant in Savar immediately to avert a further crisis in the future.

Amongst other demands, they also urged the withdrawal of duties on chemicals imported in to the country to process rawhide in to leather and also requested the government to avail them, duty free access of leather products to other developed countries.

The Industry Minister assured the delegation of all possible help from the government and said it would take all necessary steps to build the effluent plant by 2010 and advised them to diversify their product range as well as markets to overcome the slowdown in orders.
