Global Footwear Manufacturing Summit 2019


With China’s price competitiveness eroding, overseas investments by China-based footwear manufacturers is more compelling than ever. Industry leaders are increasingly expanding their investments in Vietnam, an established footwear manufacturing region offering unique development opportunities to foreign investors and buyers looking to expand sourcing outside of China.

Vietnam ranks second in the world amongst shoe exporters, playing a crucial role in footwear production and international trade, and establishing itself as a strategic country for leading footwear producers. In the first 9 months of 2018, footwear exports reached US$11.7 billion, a 10% increase relative to 2017.

The three-day event includes presentations from industry experts and tours of some of Vietnam’s top footwear production sites. The summit is designed to acquaint companies with the shoe manufacturing industry in Vietnam, including laws and regulations, trade rules and agreements, investment condition and terms, and the local labor situation.
