The domestic leather industry will be in grave danger if the government does not withdraw their decision, said Shaheen

Bangladesh Tanners Association (BTA) has demanded the withdrawal of raw leather export to protect the domestic industry. 

They have made this claim at a press conference, in the Dhanmondi area, in Dhaka on Wednesday.

BTA Chairman Shaheen Ahmed said: "From August 20, we will be collecting raw hides at the price determined by the leather traders."

"The government's decision to export raw hides must be withdrawn immediately. Otherwise, the domestic leather industry will be in grave danger," he added.

Earlier on the same day, Commerce Minister Tipu Munshi said raw hides will be exported, given the low price of leather in the domestic market.
