Government should provide required land to establish Urban Haat in the state of Manipur, alike other states, for conducting handicraft exhibitions and related activities whole year, in a bid to bring all artisans across the country on one platform.

President of Manipur Apex Handloom Weavers' and Handicraft Artisans' Cooperative Society Ltd, Ms. M Satyabhama stated this at the 1st Apex Craft Bazar, sponsored by the Office of the Development Commissioner (Handicrafts).

Ms. M Satyabhama said that just two acres of land is provided to construct Urban Haat, which requires minimum 5 acres of land to establish.

She further added that the Apex Craft Bazar aims at attracting consumers, in and outside the state, towards handicraft products of regional artisans, as well as to offer a substantial marketing platform to these artisans as they always have to deal with marketing issues, noted Ms. Satyabhama.

She opined that exclusive handicraft trade fairs should be organized by the government in all metro cities of the country featuring live demonstration of various creations by the craftsperson along with organizing buyer-seller meets.

The craft bazaar costs Rs. 1.3 million to organise, of which 75 percent is provided by the government and rest of the 25 percent is sanctioned by the Apex Society. 50 percent of government's share has been released, while remaining will be offered following the conclusion of craft bazaar, added Ms. Satyabhama.
