Mohammad Babaei, a representative of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, said on Tuesday May 10 that UNIDO is ready to cooperate with Hamedan Province to help promote its leather industry.
He made the remarks in a speech to Hamedan Province Employment and Investment Working Group.
Babaei said that UNIDO had helped several industries in Iran receive educational support, including the leather industry.
The deadline for the implementation of the project is 3-5 years, and Hamedan is one of the seven provinces designated by UNIDO.
The people of Hamedan have a long history in the leather industry and 1,000 leather producers currently operate in the province, he said. At present, Hamedan is exporting leather to Turkey and Italy.
UNIDO mainly aims to help promote industrial development in developing countries, as well as those with transition economies.
