Lack of market access restricts handicrafts trade

Aimed at enhancement of nation's economy while promoting the younger class, mainly the educated unemployed youth in India, many exhibitions not only displaying handloom and handicraft products, but even extending skill training are being conducted at present.

DC Handicrafts and DC Handloom jointly with Ministry of Textile, Government of India have extended financial aid for carrying out these programmes.

Two trade fairs, one Winter Craft Bazaar at Yaiskul Ground and the other Sach Festival of Art and Craft at Khongman zone III in Manipur have been thrown open to public by the organizers, 'Peoples Education for Awareness and Community Empowerment' and 'Sharma Art and Craft House'.

The local authorities were advised by the Self Help Groups (SHG's) and NGOs active in the field to establish marketing centers and urban hubs at appropriate places, as despite of continued efforts, they are still exposed to problems while marketing their products.

With a view to impart awareness to youth many training programmes are being conducted by the organizers in the State involved in organizing such craft and handloom exhibitions. Social Development Organisation (SDO) wangkhei, HADO, APEX, Asian Expo, Women Income Generation Centre Thoubal, etc. are some of the regular organizers of such trade fairs.
