Accordingly, the city will create 600-750 products of handicrafts and fine arts for domestic and foreign markets, supporting about 500 enterprises participating in trade fairs at home and abroad.

Besides, some 20 rural facilities would be eligible to receive funds to invest in new, advanced, modern equipment. Some 2,000-2,300 leaders and managers of rural industrial establishments will be trained to improve their management capacity.

The city will also support rural industrial establishments operating in industries with potential and existing strengths to compete in the domestic and export markets by applying scientific and technological advances and developing sustainable products and markets.

Rural industrial establishments will have more opportunities to develop the digital economy and e-commerce and participate in global supply chains.

The city will also enhance online business matching under the new situation. 

In addition, Hanoi will mobilize and effectively utilize all resources from all economic sectors to strengthen the development of industrial and handicraft production, contributing to the economic advancement of rural areas and increasing the rate of industrial, handicraft, and service production, reducing the proportion of agriculture.

This year, Hanoi has hosted many craft trade fairs, including the Hanoi Gift Show 2022, a large-scale, export-oriented event in the Asia-Pacific region, the Hanoi Craft Design Contest 2022, and others.

The activities are expected to continue supporting handicraft enterprises to restore production and business activities, develop the city’s economy, seek customers in international markets, and expand key export markets.

Currently, Hanoi has 1,350 craft villages, focusing on traditional trades like lacquer, mosaic, embroidery, silk weaving, ceramics, bamboo, and rattan weaving. 

The city is home to the country's largest craft villages and artisans.
