Overview and Background of Footwear Sector

The choice of footwear of Nepalese consumers is increasing with the changing fashion, awareness on health and increasing economic status.At the same time the domestic production capacity is also increasing with the scaling-up effort and number of producers. Although the producers estimates over 5,00,00,000 pairs of Nepalese footwear production yearly,due to lack of production and per capita consumption survey, the value chain analysis report of Nepalese footwear determined the domestic market coverage by domestic products in 2014/2015 is 42% against the production estimate of 2014 i.e. 3,00,00,000 pairs(while compared with import and export data of the same year 2014/2015)

with the government of Nepal, private sectors, social organizations & industrialists for policy development & implementation. Footwear sector in Nepal is on sluggish development mode, Footwear products are being admired by the foreign people to keep as the Nepali Footwear are being export to more than 50 countries. We all Nepalese living in the country and in foreign should take initiative to use Nepali products to add special appeal of daily living purpose. This will help to balance trade deficit recurring in our economy. As foreign shoes are taking over the market, with the development of time, it is now an inevitable necessity to modify and modify the commercial and business activities. We will continue to be active for this. We pledge that our federation under my leadership will move forward by imbibing this basic principle. For this, I want to assure that the leadership of the Federation will always be active.
