The main objective of the policy roundtable was to initiate a multi stakeholder dialogue on creating an enabling eco system for the craft sector so that its producers are valued and respected for their skills and they become active stakeholders and beneficiaries of the larger wealth creation process. The broad objective of the policy roundtable was to explore an inclusive and socially responsible approach for supporting producers through the entire value chain, strengthening both production and marketing and leveraging their traditional skills into internationally competitive craft products and enterprises.
