Shilpa National Exhibition and Award Ceremony for the handicraft and small industrialists have been organized as an annual event to popularize the products of traditional handicraftsmen and small industrialists and to provide them an opportunity to showcase and exhibit their creative products and processes and give the producers an opportunity to market their products directly through trade stalls. Providing trade stalls to the producers helps to avoid exploitation by the middlemen. Moreover, the recognition of the creative products of the handicraftsmen and small industrialists through the national awards has helped to strengthen the sector.
“Shilpa Handicraft Exhibition” is being organized from 14-16 August 2015 at The Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), Colombo by Ministry of Traditional Industries & Small Enterprise Development.
