Handicraft industry can generate employment

According to the article of Himalayan News Service
“Some of Nepal’s handicraft products include pashmina and dhaka products; woolen goods; felt and silk products and cotton, hemp and alloy goods. Silver jewellery; metal craft; handmade paper products; wood craft, bone and horn products; ceramics products; leather goods; incense, paubha (thanka); Mithila art; beads items; bamboo products, dhakiyas (baskets made of a certain type of wicker); and khukuris are some of the non-textile handicraft products of Nepal. But Nepal has not been able to explore the export potentialities of these products. Nepal’s handicraft exports have seen rise and fall over the years. In the fiscal year 2016/17, handicrafts worth Rs. 4.8 billion were exported to different countries, the Federation of Handicraft Association of Nepal said in July last year, indicating a growth compared to the previous fiscal year. The annual growth in the export of handicraft products, according to Commerce Secretary Chandra Kumar Ghimire, is three percent, which is but tepid.”
