CLE to delibrate over EU's anti-dumping duty issue

Jul '05
In view of the EU's plan to impose anti-dumping duty over cheap imports of footwear from India, the Council of Leather Exports (CLE) is to hold a meeting in Kanpur to study its implications.

Recently, the EU raised two anti-dumping probe over the import of footwear from India, following the appeal by European Confederation of Footwear Industries.

The Confederation accused India and China for creating disruption in the markets of Italy, Portugal, and Spain through safety shoes exports.

The Kanpur leather industry would be deeply affected if the EU impose anti-dumping duty as it accounts 95 percent of the safety shoes produced in India, and also contributes 95 percent in exports to EU markets.

The major exporters in the city are: Super House, Super Tannery, Zaz Sons, Rahman Exports and Mirza Tanners who exports safety shoes and other leather products worth over Rs 1,000 crore a year to countries in Europe and elsewhere.

The CLE members will confer as to how the EU threat be met, under the lead of Chennai-based leather industrialist Rafeeque Ahmad, former President of the Federation of Indian Exports Organisations (FIEO).

CLE sources informed that they had assessed the details on both counts and expect the Indian exporters to come out with concrete solutions.
