Nagaland Handloom & Handicrafts Development Corporation (NHHDC) has organized the Special Handloom Expo 2009 under the aegis of Union Ministry of Textiles. The expo that opened on November 5 will continue till 15th of the month.

All districts of the states of Nagaland, Manipur and Assam, except smaller districts are marking their presence in the Expo, which is being conducted with the objectives of developing rural sector and to expose and teach ideas of marketing to the crafts-persons of region.

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.

District level expos have been held in almost all the districts by the department till now, with an objective of promoting handloom and handicraft manufactured by local craftsmen considering that the national handloom expo would be coinciding with the Hornbill Festival, which is called as the 'Festival of Festivals'.
