The information was revealedat a seminar on applied art and design of craft products recently held by theassociation and the University of Industrial Fine Art.

Of the figure, there are1,748 villages recognised by the Government’s criteria, generating jobs for 10million labourers and raking in about 1.7 billion USD.
