In my first message to all stakeholders in the industry, I wish to express my gratitude for the cooperation and support extended from the inception. As you are aware, there has been a transition at the leadership level at LSSC and this is the phase where we are revisiting our goals in skill development and capacity building. ‘Well begun is half done’, going by this adage, I share my sincere thanks to Shri. Habib Hussain who started the organization from scratch and passed on the mantle to Shri Aqeel Ahmed to continue the good work. We are indebted to these industry leaders to continuous guidance and support.
The new government has taken up many measures to further boost the national skilling agenda and this has given a fillip to continue the policies and schemes in the leather industry. I have closely worked with the young and energetic team at LSSC over the last two years as the COO which is at the cusp of moving to the next level to take on new challenges. This is an opportunity to address the training needs of various sub-sectors in leather as we have set our goal to be the extended Human Resources (HR) department for the Industry. We wish all our partners to join us in this journey to gear up to achieve this goal for a completely skilled footwear, fashion, leather and accessories industry. Here’s wishing everyone great success in their endeavours to strengthen the initiatives and make them highly impactful.
