The first dialogue between CLRI and the youth of the region is being seen as the first step towards creating employment in the region.

Turtuk resident Mohammad Haneef (26) travelled over 200 km to Leh to learn about the leather industry, its scope and the possible entrepreneurship opportunities in Ladakh.

Haneef was among the 45-odd youngsters, most of whom had never worked in the leather industry, who attended a day-long workshop ‘Entrepreneurship Opportunities in leather and allied products’ on Wednesday. It was organised jointly by the Industries and Commerce Department, Union Territory of Ladakh and CSIR-Central Leather Research Institute (CLRI), Chennai.

The first interaction between CLRI and youngsters of the region is being seen as the maiden move aimed at employment generation here in this field.

After Ladakh Union Territory (UT) was constituted in 2019, the Industries and Commerce Department here had inked an MoU with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research(CSIR), under which a number of initiatives are planned for the UT. See details.
