Hanoi (VNA) -
New trend and growth models in the footwear industry will be the main topic of discussions at the Vietnam Footwear Summit 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City from March 21-22.

According to the Vietnam Leather, Footwear and Handbag Association (Lefaso), the event is expected to help local businesses grasp international footwear development trend, apply new materials and information and technology (IT) to slash costs and meet environmental requirements.

Provided with sufficient information from foreign experts, Vietnamese footwear producers will be able to pen vision and development strategies.

The event will also give local firms a chance to meet with customers from 20 countries worldwide.

Vietnam’s footwear industry has enjoyed a giant stride thanks to the bilateral and multilateral trade agreements as well as the fourth industrial revolution. However, enterprises need to renew to keep pace with latest trend and join the global supply chain. - VNA
