The Footwear Industry is a labor-intensive industrial sector that contributes to the national economy. Based on data from the Pusdatin of the Ministry of Industry, the footwear industry's export performance throughout 2020 was US$ 4.8 billion, an increase of 9% compared to export performance in 2019, which only reached US$ 4.41 billion. Meanwhile, in January 2021, temporary data on the export performance of the national footwear industry was US$ 0.49 billion, an increase of 15.54% compared to the same period in the previous year which only reached US$ 0.42 billion. This positive performance in 2020 and 2021 can still be realized because the domestic investment climate can be appropriately maintained during the pandemic.
