Currency variations hit leather exports

Leather exports faced a setback in the current financial year after the fall of some leading currencies, including the Euro, against the US Dollar. The country's leather sector entered into the billion-dollar exporting club in the last financial year when shipment of leather, footwear and other leather products reached US $1.12 billion, of which $505 million was earned from leather and $378 million from footwear, according to the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB).
