Assomac and CLE sign protocol15 August 2003
On June 11, Assomac and the Council for Leather Export (CLE) signed an important protocol for collaboration in the Milan office of Aimpes. The agreement - signed for Assomac by their chairman Giuseppe Barrera and for the CLE by Sampath Srinivasan Kumar - was prompted by the Council for Leather Export itself, following the work done in Calcutta by Assomac in recent months, in particular the study on the effects of relocating the city's tanning firms to the new Leather Industrial Park. Among other things, the agreement envisages a number of initiatives providing technical assistance to Indian companies in the footwear, leathergoods and tanning sectors. The main aim of these initiatives is to identify the companies' technological needs, which will be monitored by Assomac experts.
