Introducing handicraft items to the younger generation is necessary for its survival in the modern world. And, the older generation has to set examples for youngsters in this regard and guide them to ensure the future of country's indigenous traditions, stated Mr. Abd Ghani bin Haji Othman, Assistant Tutong District Officer.

The officer was speaking at a certificate presentation ceremony of a one-day workshop for youths below the age of 15, wherein handicraft activities had been carried out by senior Bukit residents. He emphasized that the assistance of other sectors such as industry and tourism in handicraft promotion is essential.

Mr. Othman said that in a bid to market these handicraft items, their uniqueness has to be focused. He expected that these products would emerge as the villager's identity helping them to improve their income and standard of living.
Holding workshops could prove to be helpful to avoid untoward activities of younger generation and offer them knowledge and up-liftment, as they are country's future, underlined Mr. Othman.

The one-day workshop was aimed to introduce villagers in the Tutong District with handicraft items and also to develop, uphold and improve handicraft manufacturing as well as to maintain indigenous traditions and encourage youth class regarding this sector.

Around 40 individuals attended the workshop wherein three kinds of handicrafts were introduced including that of weaving.
