Iranian shoe makers ask for state support

Ali Lashgari, deputy chairman of the board of directors of the shoe industry company, said that the country's footwear industry, which employs about 1 million people, needs government support, in particular, to reduce or abolish certain taxes.

Ali Lashgari noted that importing shoes cannot cause significant damage to the industry, but it is important that manufacturers do not have other problems, such as rising prices for raw materials and numerous taxes.

According to Ali Lashgari, today the cost of raw materials has reached 39,2% of the price of finished products, and this leads to an increase in the final cost of shoes. Rising prices for raw materials creates problems primarily for manufacturers, since they cannot reduce their production costs and, at the same time, deliver products to the market at a price lower than their real final cost.

Ali Lashgari recalled that currently the volume of footwear production exceeds the domestic needs of the country and the government, having undertaken certain obligations, can put an end to the import of low-quality Chinese shoes.

The Iranians have already realized that Chinese shoes are not of high quality, and refuse to buy it. Chinese shoes are smuggled into the Iranian market. As for the import of shoes, today, through official channels, these products are supplied from Turkey, Vietnam and some countries of East Asia.

Ali Lashgari said Iranian shoes are exported to countries such as Afghanistan, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, and stressed that Iranian shoe makers plan to produce products that meet European standards in order to start shipping them to European countries.
