Mario Pucci, formerly International Relations Manager of Assomac, has been appointed consultant of the new Indian Leather Desk in Milan. Pucci has extensive knowledge and contacts in the Italian leather industry.

The Indian Council for Leather Exports (CLE) opened the Indian leather desk in Milan in January in an effort to promote foreign investment and joint-ventures. The desk will help Indian and Italian leather companies come together, compile databases of Italian buyers and manufacturers interested in partnership with Indian companies and advise and assist the CLE with marketing and investment programmes related to Italy.
