Date : 2010-12-06 12:18:38

DescriptionViet Nam has a long and rich history regarding sericulture. Weaving colourful brocade products has been a traditional craft which has been passed on from generation to generation, especially among ethnic minorities. The programme aims to increase overall sericulture production and improve productivity of mulberry farmers; enhance processing technology and upgrade quality of export-ready silk yarn. In addition, the programme will focus on introducing more environmentally friendly production practices, including improvement of waste treatment system and use of azo-free and natural dyes to reduce harm to the environment. The programme will furthermore make assistance available to diversify brocade products by creating new designs with better quality. Moreover, it will build sustainable linkages among actors in the value chain and optimize distribution channels for both domestic (local consumers, foreign tourists) and handicraft importers (including buyers at international trade fairs). This value chain study is prepared by the International Trade Centre (ITC) within the context of the joint programme entitled ‘Green Production and Trade to Increase Income and Employment Opportunities for the Rural Poor’.
