EgyptToday.com is reporting the 31.5% decline in the first 8 months of the year was attributed to the decline in the global demand for leather, by the President of the Export Council for Leather Industries Mahmoud Sarg.

According to the same source, the lack of focus on the livestock in Egypt with impacts on the quality of the leather resulting from there, also had a negative impact on exports.
