Pakistan Plans Global Market Access to Balochi Handicrafts

Balochistan government has planned international market access to the local handicrafts, and embroidery, which have huge potential to generate foreign exchange for the country.

The handicraft is an integral part of the cottage industry across the province, an official of the Balochistan government said in an exclusive talk with APP.

He said the government would play its due role in promoting handicrafts being made in the neglected rural and semi-urban areas of the province by arranging exhibitions, trade fairs, and craft bazaars both at home and abroad to create a market for them.

Besides developing road infrastructure and providing basic necessities of life in those areas, human development has been given top priority by the government for better production of handicrafts, the official added. He said most of the gems and jewelry entrepreneurs belonged to the less developed areas.
