The leather and footwear industry suffered the most from Russia's entry into the WTO. Already, unequal competition is observed in the segment, caused by the increase in illegal import of shoes through Kazakhstan, as well as by the expectation of the forthcoming reduction in import duties by almost 2,5 times within the framework of the WTO and the signing of an agreement on duty-free trade with Vietnam, the fourth footwear manufacturer in the world.
