Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa, while speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the Crafts Marketing Village at Battaramulla, said that arts and handicrafts represent the history and culture of any country before the world. He also added that the artists are like representatives of a country in the world.

The Crafts Marketing Village has been set up at the Janakala Kendraya premises in Battaramulla and houses 30 stalls that exhibits and vends various handicraft items produced by craftsmen from almost all the districts of the country including the ones from the north and the east.

Sri Lankan handicrafts have attained a remarkable position in the handicraft sector across the globe. The country's craftsmen should use latest equipments for their art work but then, there should be no compromise on the historical and conventional mode of preparing these handicrafts.

Tourists, while visiting a foreign country, prefer buying those products which symbolizes the national traits of that country. Also, they prefer purchasing directly from the manufacturers of those products without any third-party intervention. The marketing village is seen to serve the purpose, as it would allow people to buy handicraft items directly from those who produced these items.

The products meant for display at the crafts village need to meet higher quality norms, which requires the craftsmen to make use of latest equipments.
