New cluster: Formation date set

Published: 6th Feb 2017

Pretoria (SA) – The Programme Approval Panel of the IDC’s Clothing & Textile Competitiveness Improvement Programme has approved the formation of a new national cluster to replace the former National Footwear & Leather Cluster, according to acting GM Ernest Heunis.

Likely to be known as the Footwear & Leather Industries Cluster (FLIC), the founding meeting and incorporation meeting will be held on February 15, at the Eddels offices in Pietermaritzburg, and will be attended by representatives of the 4 sub-national clusters who will be its founding members – the Exotic Leather Cluster, the Fast Track Cluster (aka the Foschini/Eddels cluster), the Durban Regional Cluster (the Mr Price cluster), and the Southern Cape Cluster.

“Once it has been founded, other stakeholders will be asked to join, as directors and members,” he said.
