Handicraft made by the members of the Tutong Senior Citizens Activity Centre has a broad potential to be developed and marketed through the cooperation of the producer and marketers. Aside from that, according to the Deputy Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism, it can enhance their personal economy. Awang Wardi bin Haji Mohammad Ali stressed the matter during a visit to the centre, yesterday morning.
Awang Wardi said that they have brought in entrepreneurs and they were satisfied with the products sold. Nevertheless, it still requires a background on the product so that its use and name is known.
A number of entrepreneurs who are active in making handicraft products from recycled materials such as plastics, beads and natural materials said that the handicraft products can bring in substantial income through orders from buyers in large quantities.
