VGP – Viet Nam ranked second in footwear export to Colombia, earning more than $78 million in 2013, which accounted for 17% of the South American country’s total footwear imports.

Despite a sharp decline of 22% in last year, China remained Colombia’s largest footwear exporter, making up 52% of Colombia’s market share followed by Brazil 8%, Indonesia 7%, and Ecuador 6%.

In 2012, Colombia’s footwear and accessories imports fell by 10% to $473 million, primarily attributable to the imposition of a 10% tariff on imports.
