New skilled talent is needed to relaunch the leather industry in Nigeria.

One of the key limiting factors for the growth of the leather sector in Nigeria is the lack of skilled Artisans, according to the founder of Lagos Leather Fair. This lack of skilled workers hampers businesses in the leather sector from expanding and reaching their full potential. The pool of skilled workers is necessary for businesses to be able to grow and produce high-quality products. Without this pool of skilled workers, businesses in the leather sector will find it difficult to expand and reach their full potential.

The Lagos Leather Fair 5 is an event that will showcase Nigeria’s skills and abilities in the leather industry to compete globally. This event will help Nigeria gain the needed experience and knowledge in this field to be successful on an international level. By participating in this event, Nigeria will be able to learn from other countries and gain a better understanding of what it takes to be successful on a global scale. Additionally, this event will provide Nigeria with the opportunity to network with other countries and establish relationships that could be beneficial for the future.

This industry faces many challenges that hinder leather Manufacturing concerns. These include a lack of Infrastructure and Logistics, which can make it difficult to get the supplies and resources needed for production. Additionally, there can be difficulties in marketing and selling leather products, as the industry is often not well-known or understood by the general public. As a result, it can be hard to compete with other industries that have more established reputations. Additionally, this industry is often reliant on manual labor, which can be expensive and difficult to find.

Backward integration to create more value-added jobs.

Nigeria’s Federal Government has stated its intention to increase its backward integration efforts, in order to ensure that all raw materials needed for the growth of the industry are sourced locally. This move is seen as an effort to diversify the economy and reduce dependence on imported raw materials. Backward integration is also seen as a way to create more value-added jobs within the country. The government has identified a number of key sectors that it wants to focus on, in order to ensure the success of this initiative. These include Agriculture, Mining, and Manufacturing sectors.

The Lagos Leather Fair exhibition is an annual event that showcases the best of the Nigerian leather industry.
