BRAZIL: Jan-Oct Footwear Exports Total $1.49bn
Brazilian footwear exports totalled $1.49 billion for the period between January and October 2004, according to the Brazilian Association of Footwear Industries (Abicalcados).
Abicalcados believes the sector will see $1.7bn worth of exports for the year as a whole - an increase from the $1.54bn recorded in 2003.
The USA, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Germany have been the main destinations for Brazil's shoes this year.
Total footwear industry sales in Brazil presently amount to $10bn a year, with 180 million of the 700m pairs of shoes produced being exported overseas.
Abicalcados says that more shoes need to be made for export purposes, and that the sector's full potential is not yet being fulfilled.
