Tannery Village, the second of its kind across the country will be set up in Mirsarai Economic Zone (MEZ) in Chittagong , under Bangabandhu Shilpa Nagari (BSN) 'Industrial city’ belt in the near future.

To survive the prospective leather industry and dynamism in leather products in the country, government has taken steps to establish a Tannery village in Mirsarai for the development of this sector, he added.

President of CCCI Mahbubul Alam said that government had undertaken projects for 100 special Economic Zone (EZ) in the country with one stop service of which 30 zone are earmarked in greater Chittagong.

He said after implementations of these proposed EZ in greater Chittagong, the reality and dream of commercial capital will come into final shape.
