MACA calls upon government to establish handicrafts centre

THE Myanmar Arts and Crafts Association (MACA) requested the government to set up a handicrafts centre or construct a handicraft village so that shops and workshops can all be arranged in one place, said U Thardu, chair of the association, at a recent meeting between Vice President U Myint Swe and the businessmen.
        Also, MACA requested the government to boost Myanmar’s handicrafts market with an aim to penetrate the European Union and the US markets.
        Additionally, the association mentioned that it would also like to meet with the respective region and state governments to report the strengths and weaknesses of Myanmar’s arts and crafts.
        MACA called upon the government to lift or waive tax imposed on small-scale businessmen, working with less than 10 labourers. As the handicrafts market has been cooling, the burden of taxation has risen. It requested the government to grant a temporary tax exemption or tax waivers before the market recovers.
        At present, Myanmar’s arts and crafts industry is threatened almost to extinction, as a result of shortage of skilled labourers and lower demand.
