First ever Intl buyer-seller meet for Kashmiri handicrafts

Aug '09
Best of Kashmiri handicrafts have been showcased to businessmen across the globe through the first ever International buyer-seller meet to promote Kashmiri handicrafts internationally.

The meet has been organized by Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCCI) on the banks of Dal Lake, and was inaugurated by the Chief Minister, Mr. Omar Abdullah, who said that it would prove to be helpful for the successful revival of age old ties among Kashmiri handicraft sellers and foreign buyers.

He informed that hordes of buyers were rushing to Kashmir to buy handicrafts before 1989, but after that sellers in the state had to move out to sell their products as they were not getting buyers within the state. The CM said, by adopting this strategy of reaching out to the buyers, Kashmiri artisans and sellers survived the toughest of times.

Handicraft sector, that can support the economy of the state even during unfavorable conditions, has to meet the needs and tests of the 21st century people through innovations and investments in new designs, patterns and colours, said Mr. Abdullah.

According to the recent findings, with regards to the skills of Kashmiri's undertaken by NASSCOM and Kashmir University, Kashmiri's are good entrepreneurs and innovators, but are not good at salesmanship. So, they need to exploit their positive factors and improve their deficiencies.

KCCI, is acting as a bridge to fill the gap between government and public, that also intends to organize such events in foreign countries like New York and Tokyo, said KCCI President, Mr. Mubeen Shah.
