They arrived in Milan last week on Tuesday, right on time to visit Lineapelle94 and Simac Tanning Tech, and share with UNIC tanners their meaningful participation in the fair, and much more. Fifteen Algerian leather professionals, gathered in a delegation composed of private and public tanneries, ministries and local research/training centres, have encountered Italian leather industry, of which they are potential suppliers, since they produce bovine skins and hides and, most of all, sheep and goat wet blue. The international cooperation and B2B sharing project, managed by World Bank, and focused on the development of Algerian leather business, was not spotlighted just at Lineapelle94. In fact, last Friday UNIC escorted the Algerian group of representatives to Arzignano district, “showing them around”. Two visits were on the agenda: the former at the Acque del Chiampo wastewater purification system; the latter at Conceria Junior. “Our involvement – point out at UNIC – aims to enhance commercial relations between Italian tanneries and Algerian raw material suppliers”.
