The president of Colombian leather and footwear industry association Acicam, Gustavo Flores, has said he expects 2018 to be a much more positive year for the sector.

In an interview with local media, Mr Flores said domestic consumption of both leather and footwear is likely to increase this year, following a trend that emerged in the final months of 2017.

He added that a 5.9% rise in the country’s minimum wage, which came into force at the start of 2018, will contribute to an increase in the per capita consumption of footwear, which currently stands at between two and three pairs per year.
