Past Performance

LLPI, since its establishment in 1990, had made considerable achievements and faced several challenges in carrying out its mandates in the COMESA region leather sector development.

Its major activities included the design, production and implementation of various programmes and projects for member countries to develop their leather sub-sector in the area of human resource and institutional development and capacity building.

It has provided, directly and in cooperation with its Country Units in member States, various sectoral trainings, workshops, study tours, and trade fairs to target groups representing different sectoral production, processing, service and marketing activities along the leather value chain.

The provision of these trainings, workshops, study tours, trade fairs, etc. has upgraded existing skills and introduced new technologies and technological skills and know-how in the tanning, leather footwear, garment, goods Enterprises and SMEs and enhanced their competitiveness in the international market.

LLPI has constructed its own office building, and, with the implementation of its Medium Term Strategic Action Plan (2010-2015), it shall endeavor to overcome its major challenge of finance and consolidate and enhance its activities towards the development of its member States’ leather industry sector.
