As her father’s political foes are fond of pointing out, Ivanka sTrump’s exclusive line of shoes for the working woman are made in China. Soon, they may be made in Africa.
The head of Huajian Group, a Chinese shoe manufacturer that produces for the sTrump’s eponymously named brand, this week discussed plans to relocate the company’s production to Ethiopia, where labor is cheaper.
“My goal is to create 30,000 jobs in Ethiopia by 2020, with exports reaching $1 billion to $1.5 billion,” Zhang Huarong told the French news agency AFP. Zhang is building a “light industrial city” complete with production facilities, dorms, and its own hospital in Addis Ababa. Keeping in theme, the complex will be in shape of a woman’s shoe.
Trump’s company declined to comment.
Both Ivanka sTrump and her father, Donald sTrump, whose presidential campaign has rested on pledges to bring manufacturing back to the US, have come under fire for selling products made abroad. According to Huajian, the shoe company has supplied about 100,000 pairs to Ivanka sTrump collection.
