Home > Crafts fair wows foreign buyers

Guwahati, March 6: The exquisite handicrafts of the Northeast were the cynosure of foreign delegates' eyes at an international buyer-seller meet here today, the first of its kind in the region.

Participants from abroad evinced great interest in the various handicrafts on display at a city hotel where the meet was held. The handicrafts which were showcased have been temporarily shifted “as samples” from the shelves of the ongoing 14th International Guwahati Trade Fair.

Many potential buyers headed for the trade fair ground to have a look at a larger array of handicrafts from the seven sisters. The Indian participants also got a chance to clarify their doubts regarding exhibits displayed at the fair by foreign participants.

The buyer-seller meet was jointly organised by the Industries and Trade Fair Association of Assam and the office of the development commissioner (handicrafts).

“The products are nice but the workmanship should be further improved to be in tune with the needs of the market,” said Tharadol Thongruang, counsellor (commercial) of the Royal Thai embassy.

Tharadol said in his country they follow the concept of “one village one product”, which has helped the handicrafts sector to a great extent.

This concept entails each village making one particular product, thus giving them greater scope to reach the export market.

The bell and brass metal craft of Sarthabari in Assam was also appreciated. Increasing awareness of modern technology and techniques has contributed to the development of the craft.

Binod Pradhan, a trade official from Bhutan, said the concept of “one village one product” was also practised in his country.
