The event which was sponsored by the Government of India and Government of Manipur was inaugurated by Additional Chief Secretary, Govt of Manipur, Mr. PC Lawmkunga (IAS).

The stalls at the exhibition showcased variety of handlooms including, Churachandpur Handloom, Kakching Handloom, Wabagai Maibam Leikai Handloom, Khurai Thoudam Leikai & Ahongei Handloom, Uchathon Handloom, Dimdailong Handloom, Wangkhei Konsam Leikai Handloom, Moirang Kangjeibung Handloom and Kumbi Handloom Cluster.

The Government of India organizes a trade fair, every year, aiming to promote handloom products in domestic as well as in international markets. This trade fair, wherein around 45 handloom societies exhibit their products, witnesses' visits of foreign as well as domestic visitors, informed Mr. Lawmkunga.

Improvement in quality and designs of the products is the key measure to attract the buyers towards the products. Manufacturing products, according to the consumers' choice and requirement would accelerate the growth of handloom sector, he stated.

This sector is the second most important sector of the state, as weaving is the key source of income of most of the economically weak weavers, informed the Principal Secretary, Commerce & Industries, Mr. Nabakishore Singh.

In addition to this, old designs of handloom fabrics, which are still witnessing huge demand, need preservation. Besides, the measures such as motivation to the weavers and improvement of infrastructure should be taken on priority basis to enable the weavers to attain the product demands on time.
