Encouraging response to the wood and textile based products produced by state's craftsmen encouraged Malaysian Handicrafts Promotion corporation to target RM15 million in the handicraft sales in Sabah this year, informed the Chairman, Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak.

State's handicraft industry is viewing a rising graph regarding the number of entrepreneurs involved in it, which is 2,218 at present and which stood at 1,553 last year, informed the Chairman.

Each year there is an increase in the value of handicraft items in Sabah, he said, with the involvement of more people, the sales target can surely be achieved.

Selleh said that the entrepreneurs specializing in metal-based and batik handicraft products will be developed more as such activities were on increase.

The corporation's Sabah branch will launch 12 projects involving 45 entrepreneurs with a target of RM5.5 million, to promote handicraft under 'One District, One Industry' concept, he added.

Salleh further informed that under the Ninth Malaysia Plan to implement projects for the development of handicraft in Sabah, the Federal government has allocated RM2 million to the corporation.

The corporation will also construct offices and workshops in Semporna for handicraft production, Salleh added, informing that the projects included upgrading the handicraft incubation centre in Kota Belud which is scheduled to start in the coming July.
