Ms. N Hukhuli Sema Managing Director of NHHDC said this after inaugurating the expo. Such kinds of expos have been organized since last three years which are witnessing tremendous response from local crafts-persons, she informed.

The department found it difficult to accommodate all the applicants in the expo as it was receiving a large number of applications from local crafts-persons to set up stalls in the expos.
