Bangladesh's Leather Industry: Local Production Networks in by Joseph Strasser

By Joseph Strasser

This research presents an summary of the way the Bangladeshi leather-based price chain is organised and ruled. It analyses how the leather-based processing and leather-based goods/footwear subsectors are built-in into the worldwide marketplace and to what quantity casual preparations together with illicit practices are conducive to worldwide industry access. strength kinfolk are dissected alongside the worth chain, so as to examine how neighborhood manufacturers adapt to upholding competitiveness. the result of the paintings convey the necessity to devise upgrading recommendations which pay heed to the truth of casual dynamics in an international worth chain (GVC) to enhance the neighborhood manufacturers’ competitiveness. The GVC viewpoint was once mixed with issues on upgrading, subcontracting, middlemen and informality to safely examine the complexity of the transactions within the chain. the information of this learn are drawn from empirical box experiences in Dhaka, Bangladesh and different sections of the overseas leather-based price chain in the course of the period of time of 2010 to 2014. A qualitative study technique used to be complemented with quantitative methods.

I) Who are the actors and what are the commodity and information flows in the leather goods and footwear industry? (ii) How is the leather goods and footwear chain segment governed? Having understood the structure of the local production network, it is necessary to analyse power asymmetries and drawbacks that obstruct better market integration. Both formal and informal institutions may explain overt and covert dynamics in the global value chain. The formal institutional framework (policies, regulations, influence of external actors) that firms are embedded within is expected to be crucial to the competitiveness of the leather production network.
