'Support handicraft industry in Aburi' - Experts

29
Nov '08
Aburi region in Ghana abounds with bountiful of talent in the handicraft industry and to providing support to the local artisans, Aburihene Nana Otubour Djan Kwasi II has appealed to the government in the region. He said that this will also help the region grow economically.

This was mentioned by Kwasi at a seminar to understand and a find a solution to the decay that has set in the local handicraft industry which was once the export hub of the sector. He also said that talents can be utilized only if the necessary infrastructure is in place.

He urged the government to revive the local handicraft industry and thereby help the locals earn a livelihood and also bring in more and valuable foreign exchange which had fallen drastically in recent years.

According to statistics, the sector earned US $59.65 million in the last seven years. This figure is not so high since Ghanaian artisans face competition from China on pricing, quality etc. The other factors which have contributed to the decline in exports according to speakers are the design and quality gaps in the low and mid segment market.

The other big challenge, according to experts was, adoption of new technologies by the artisans as nowadays most of the global business came from on-line and web based trading which they were yet to adopt.
