Govt plans to promote handicraft sector
Aug '08
The handicraft industry world over, has suddenly become one of the most attractive, potential and promising sector that can bring lot of overseas revenue. Even the Sri Lankan Government has realised the importance of it and as a result, is focusing on promoting colourful and traditional handicraft of the country.

The Government has helped the handicraft industry by upgrading the sector through incorporating modern technology and advancement. Various exhibitions are held round the year for giving the artisans opportunity to display their wide range of items that reflects the tradition of Sri Lanka.

Experts believe that, the craftsmen should imbibe modernity and learn from artisans of other countries but at the same time they must not loose their age old art that makes every single product distinct.

The interesting range of Sri Lankan handicrafts works including bronze carvings, silver and gold jewellery, sesath, musical instruments, batiks, patchwork, lace, embroidery work, masks, wood carvings and sculptures.
