Seminar to create awareness on handloom exports
Oct '10
Handloom Export promotion Council, Chennai and Weavers' Service Centre, Imphal jointly organized a seminar on handloom exports awareness.

O Nabakishore, the Principal Secretary (Commerce & Industries) while addressing the seminar, pointed out that weaving is an important aspect of life in the north-eastern region and every part of the society to which the art of weaving is known.

The chief guest added that export market provides higher prices for the commodities. He also vehemently supported the idea of expanding the scope of income and employment generation through the export of handloom commodities.

He was of the opinion that the seminar will be regarded as a successful effort only when it enables a few individuals from the area to emerge as handloom exporters. He also recommended that there is a necessity for raising the production of handloom commodities to fulfill the export demands as well as restructuring the managing and networking system.

The indigenous products, especially the woman's apparel, have high demands not only from the Manipuri women residing in different parts of India but also from foreign women settled elsewhere in the globe.

He suggested that the local handloom products must be sent to the Manipur Emporium, Delhi as there is high demand for these products in metropolitan cities like Delhi and Mumbai, when compared with the low sales within the state.

He revealed that garments designed and weaved by the weavers of hill districts are mostly demanded by foreigners against the demand in the local markets.
