The Federation of Handicraft Associations of Nepal is mulling to set up a handicraft village near Kathmandu with investment from the private sector, informed the President of the Association, Mr. Puskar Man Shakya, who added by saying that that it is still uncertain whether the changed government is still planning to go ahead with the proposal.

To promote the handicraft business as well as the small & cottage industries, the then Minister for Industry Ms. Asta Laxmi Shakya had announced establishing handicraft villages at Chobhar in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

As per Mr Pushkar Shakya, many businessmen were interested in putting up money for this concept of establishing handicraft villages, since these handicraft villages are expected to provide a helping hand to the tourism sector and also create employment on large scale.

Under this concept, the production and sales of the handicrafts at the village will be done through a single window and a suitable location to establish the handicraft village is being searched around Naubise, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur, Mr. Shakya said.

The handicraft village would encompass more than 200 factories and will have all the required facilities to attract tourists. It will have hotels, restaurants, mini museum, banks and customs office, informed Mr. Shakya.

He further said that to promote the handicraft businesses, handicraft villages and gift houses must be set up in each district. Mr. Shakya added that they would speak to the Finance Minister, Mr. Surendra Pandey regarding continuing the government's plan to establish these handicraft villages.

The plan to establish handicraft villages is still on the cards as both the, Prime Minister Mr. Madhav Kumar Nepal and Finance Minister Mr. Surendra Pandey were positive about the plan, informed the Executive director of the Cottage and Small Industry Development Board (CSIDB), Mr. Shyam Prasad Giri.

He further added that to establish a village at Chobhar, request for funds have been put up under a special program. The CSIDB intends to start establishing cottage industry villages in Dhankuta, Pokhara, Chitwan and Patan and Melauli in Baitadi and for this an initial budget of Rs. 33.5 million has been estimated, informed Mr, Giri.
