A high level delegation from Ministry of Trade, Republic of Indonesia visited the Footwear Design & Development Institute (FDDI), Noida on August 6, 2010.

“The objective of the visit of delegation was to know about the entire system of footwear industry in India including the best practices and appropriate technology which can be replicated in Indonesia so that the Indonesian footwear industry is in a position to contribute further to the national economy as the main source of foreign exchange.” - Mr. Rajeev Lakhara, IRS, Managing Director, FDDI.

The delegation led by Ms Iriana Trimurty Ryacudu, Directorate General of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Trade, Republic of Indonesia met the Managing Director of FDDI, Mr. Rajeev Lakhara, IRS and had a long discussion.

The Indonesian leather industry plays an important role in the country's economy and is a labour-intensive undertaking as the majority of the processing and manufacturing industries consist of medium and small-scale industries.

The basic industries in Indonesia are automotive and transportation manufactures, food processing, forest products processing, metal manufactures oil and natural gas processing and textiles as well as other industries such as electronic goods, footwear, furniture, garments, and paper goods. Most production is in Java and Sumatra.

East Java and Jogyakarta are the two Indonesia's main provinces known as production centers for leather products. The largest production center for leather bag and suitcase is in Tanggulangin Village, City of Sidoarjo, some 25 km away from Surabaya, capital city of East Java Province. Another popular center for leather products is Bantul, Jogyakarta Province.

Elaborating the details, Mr. Rajeev Lakhara, IRS, Managing Director, FDDI said “The objective of the visit of delegation was to know about the entire system of footwear industry in India including the best practices and appropriate technology which can be replicated in Indonesia so that the Indonesian footwear industry is in a position to contribute further to the national economy as the main source of foreign exchange.”

Prior to the economic crisis of 1997, the Indonesian footwear industry was one of the major contributor to Indonesian economic growth, at its peak in 1996.

The delegation was highly impressed after visiting the International Testing Center of FDDI which has full-fledged Chemical and Physical Laboratories, where all kinds of chemical and physical tests like AZO, PCP; Formaldehyde etc., are performed within strict time schedules. The delegation also saw in brief, the specific tests with respect to PCP, PCB, BOD, COD, TOC, H-CHO, Hexavallent Chromium. They also visited the pilot plant, library, classrooms, computer center etc.

The members of the delegation were highly impressed to know that FDDI has proved its supremacy in the field of retail, footwear & leather goods education by achieving a 100% job placement record for all its batches and attracting reputed national and multinational companies of world fame.
