A three-year project, 'Green Production and Trade' to improve production and trade for the deprived families engaged in creating handicrafts and living in the northern provinces of Nghe An, Thanh Hoa, Hoa Binh and Phu Tho in Vietnam, would be commenced soon this year.

For this project, the Vietnam Trade Promotion Agency (VietTrade) is joining forces with international organizations. The project has a budget of US $4.1 million, which has been sponsored by several organizations of the United Nations, including, the Food and Agriculture Organization, the Industrial Development Organization and the International Labor Organization.

Under this project, the handicraft producers in the four provinces of the country will be trained to improve production and trade for generating additional jobs with better earnings. Besides, training to enhance handicraft skills, develop sustainable materials, support new technologies to produce environmental-friendly items, will also be imparted under the project, wherein ways to approach new export markets would be suggested as well.

All the four provinces have great potential to develop crafts such as rattan products, sedge handicrafts, silk, brocade weaving, lacquers and traditional paper products. But, they still have not developed material sources for manufacturing craft products.

From 2009 onwards, a trend to develop high quality environment friendly handicraft products has been started, informed the Vietnam Handicraft Exporters Association.
