Speaking to the media ahead of the fair, he said India accounted for just about four per cent of world exports despite this robust growth.

He said the country needed better technologies to be able to manufacture leather goods, including footwear, that would compete with the best globally.

Dawar said the components and technology fair being held at Agra would focus on Taiwan, which was the number one country in the manufacture of footwear components and even China banks heavily on footwear components from Taiwanese industry, he added.
