Nepal govt to begin observing sites for handicraft centres

Government of Nepal and other private agencies are once again focusing on the proposed project for establishment of ‘Handicraft village and goods collection centre’ in four development regions of the country, and would soon begin an observation tour of the sites where these centres are proposed to be constructed. 
 
Representatives from the Government along with the Federation of Handicraft Associations of Nepal (FHAN) and the Department of Cottage and Small Industry would finalise the sites on completion of the observation tour, reports Himalayan Times.
 
The Nepali Government plans to establish handicraft villages covering 12 products, aiming to dedicate one cluster and 20 enterprises for each product which include woollen and silk carpets, traditional garments prepared from natural fabric, pashmina and handloom, as well as an ancillary industry for producing accessories for making handicraft products.
 
During a meeting in January this year, representatives of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, FHAN, Federation of Cottage and Small Scale Industry and Department of Cottage and Small Scale Industry identified Dhangadi, Surkhet, Chitwan and Itahari/Biratnagar regions as potential sites for setting up handicraft villages. 
 
Following the same, representatives from the Government and FHAN along with other associations are set to carry out the observation tour before finalizing the four sites. 
 
Bikash Ratna Dhakwa, president of FHAN, said that while the construction site for the handicraft cluster in the central region of the country is yet to be determined, the locations in the rest four regions are almost finalized and are only awaiting a final recommendation following the observation tour.
 
Based on a feasibility study for all the five development regions carried out in association with the private sector, the Ministry of Industry identified premises of Pokhara Cottage and Small Industry Development Office, Biratnagar Cottage and Small Industry Office, Surkhet and Dhangadi Cottage and Small Industry Offices for establishing handicraft villages in the four development regions.
