By Brasil to take Brazilian companies to the Mexican city of León
Brazilian companies will represent the country’s market at Anpic, Mexico’s leading leather-footwear trade fair. US$ 500 thousand are expected to be generated during the three-day event.
Mexico is the world’s eighth largest footwear producer and the second largest in Latin America, with more than 250 million pairs / year, and an average growth of 4 percent over the last two years.
It is in this strategic setting that, between October 18 and 20, in the city of León, By Brasil Components and Chemicals - an export-boosting initiative carried out in a partnership between the Brazilian Association of Companies of Components for Leather, Footwear and Manufactured Goods (Assintecal) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) – is promoting the participation of Brazilian companies and products at ANPIC, Mexico’s leading leather-footwear trade fair.
In addition to the companies’ individual booths, the initiative also features the Inspiramais International Space, where pop-up talks given by Assintecal’s speakers will be held. US$ 500 thousand are expected to be generated during the three-day event.
Covering the leather, footwear, machinery and textile sectors, among others, the ANPIC fair brings together industries from both Mexico and other countries. It is always characterized by its dynamism, as well as by the large number of contacts established and deals closed during the event.
Within the By Brazil project, Mexico stands out as the sixth main destination of the exports of the project’s member companies. In 2016, Mexico’s imports amounted to over US$ 10.9 million. The project’s companies export more than 30 products to Mexico, especially leather chemicals, fabrics, and adhesives.
