The 6th All African Leather Fair was held at the Millennium Hall, from 20 to 22 February with 200 plus companies from over 43 countries participating.

In parallel,  various discussion forums by buyers, sellers, and representatives of government institutions, non-governmental organizations, local and international companies were held. A spectacular fashion show and other entertaining programs highlighted the Ethiopian Leather industry success and colorfully concluded Friday evening. 
This event was launched 6 years ago by the late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, who is the engineer of the Growth and Transformation Plan that has given imperative focus for value added export-driven industrial development, such as the leather sector. The country has registered significant growth and development for a number of years in all sectors of which the leather industry is one.
