The local Government of Paiquan County, has taken considerable measures to ensure that women in the rural region get sufficient earnings by weaving flax cushions for the cars.

Women in the region can now do without going to Guangdong Province for doing field work; they can easily earn enough by weaving flax cushions.

For furthering this lucrative practice, the Government has cooperated with a technique training school as well as with a company indulged in selling flax cushions.

This will assist local weavers acquire skill for manufacturing these goods and will also enable them to directly sell their produce to the company. More than 3,150 women in Paiquan County have registered for attending training sessions.

Government has expressed desire to become a center for flax weaving and in order to achieve this goal, it will aim to turn local flax weaving association into an economic organization.

This body, in turn, will administer and integrate activities like weaving, training, storage, sale and other related functions. The Government has plans to purchase 400 weaving machines and set up 16 middle and big-size weaving shops in order to up-lift local villagers.
