Leh, July 18
The administration is working with the vision of taking ‘Made in Ladakh’ products to newer markets, Lieutenant Governor RK Mathur said on Sunday. He urged artisans to link their traditional training with modern techniques to produce items which are relevant to the present market.
Mathur was speaking during his visit to the ongoing training programme for artisans working on Pashmina here. The 12-day programme has been organised by the Ladakh’s Industries and Commerce Department in collaboration with the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Srinagar. It will conclude on Sunday.
Addressing the artisans from Leh and Kargil, Mathur expressed happiness about their eagerness to learn, reflected by the number of participants and the products made by them. — PTI
