Global footwear makers' forum denies membership to Myanmar

Global footwear makers
The Confederation of International Footwear Associations (CIFA), a global platform of footwear makers, has rejected Myanmar’s application to be a member of the body citing ethnic cleansing of the Rohingyas by the Myanmarese government as the reason. All 16 CIFA member nations took the call at the 36th International Footwear Conference held in Dhaka recently.

“We refused to accept the application of Myanmar due to the ongoing ethnic cleansing by the Myanmar government,” a newspaper in Bangladesh quoted CIFA chairperson Saiful Islam, who is also president of Leathergoods and Footwear Manufacturers and Exporters Association of Bangladesh, as saying.

CIFA aims at building up a friendly platform for the global shoe and allied industries, for exchanging business information among members and discussing possibility of business collaborations. CIFA members include China, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan and Vietnam. (DS)
