An Giang province to promote handicrafts


Vietnam’s An Giang province says it has developed several traditional handcraft villages and linked them to tourism routes to help to attract more arrivals.
An Giang Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism director, Nguyen Van Len, said the province is launching tours for Buddhist followers and other options focusing on ecology and agriculture.
“Authorities are hosting seminars and fairs to promote sustainable growth of arts and crafts production to help enterprises to penetrate markets locally and internationally.”
In addition, the province plans to develop traditional crafts villages, which will require financial support in the first phase of around US$2.9 million for 43 projects and US$221,000 for seven projects in the second phase.

The province People’s Committee deputy chairman, Huynh The Nang, said: “An Giang will create jobs for around 33,000 residents with average salary of US$62 a month through these projects.”
Specialized tours will offer visitors a chance to see artists from traditional craft villages making textiles or finished clothing that tourists can buy on the spot. They will also demonstrate how to weave bamboo products.
An Giang has 34 traditional handicraft villages. Located on the western side of the Mekong Delta, the province attracts more than 5 million mostly domestic holidaymakers.
