RSKO asks the president to introduce a ban on the export of leather raw materials

The Russian Union of Leatherworkers and Shoemakers (RSCO) sent a letter to the President of Russia to introduce a temporary ban on the export of raw hides and semi-finished products - according to industry experts, otherwise they will be left without resources. The document was signed by about 50 Russian manufacturers of footwear and leather goods.

It states that export duties on raw materials in the near future will decrease by an average of 2,5 times, while export volumes are constantly growing: in January-February 2014, it increased by 2,2 times. At the same time, the draft government resolutions on temporary bans on the export of leather resources, prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, were not supported by other departments - and so they remained projects.

Also, tanners and shoemakers are worried about the decrease in import duties on finished shoes (according to the WTO conditions, by 2016 the duty will be reduced from € 2 to € 1,25 per pair of leather shoes, for the rest it will drop from 10-15% below € 1 per pair) and the growth of illegal import of footwear across the border with Kazakhstan. But most of all the industry fears the signing of upcoming agreements on duty-free trade with Vietnam and India, where, in particular, Western corporations place orders for the production of footwear. As a result, as the letter says, this will lead to duty-free trade with Western countries and to the final destruction of its own industry. Therefore, the RSKO asks the president to "remove shoes and leather" from this agreement. Moreover, the union immediately asks for the maximum and wants to introduce protective import duties or a recycling fee on imported shoes.
