A new export-oriented leather company, Rich Time Enterprise, is gearing to start operations in March to grab a share of the fast expanding global leather and footwear market.

Bangladesh is a promising place for the leather industry thanks to its abundance of raw materials and cheap labour, said Md Suzan, managing director of Rich Time Enterprise.

The company, a China-Bangladesh joint venture, is currently importing machineries for its 20,000 square feet-plant at Mongla Export Processing Zone.
