Mission

SAARC Chamber Crafts Village (SCCV) serves as the information and marketing resource body by facilitation of trade activities through intra exchange of products and services among rural, semi urban and urban women producer groups, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, professionals and service providers in the South Asian Region. One of the core objectives of the SAARC Chamber Crafts Village is to create greater market opportunities, design and deliver integrated solutions for business development, support and expand the operations of SMEs through increased access to local, regional and global markets.

It has been realized that a permanent outlet, SAARC Trading House has to be established with the replication of the concept in other SAARC Countries for a larger visibility. The marketing unit should focus on a strong forward and backward linkages strategy incorporating different units for sustainability.

  a)   Crafts bazaar - The idea of a SAARC Trading House has been conceptualized for South Asian craftspeople to showcase their handicrafts product. It is also to facilitate in-house trainings, product development workshops and various development programs for the entrepreneurs, producers, artisans as well as buyers and sellers.
  b)   Organic products bazaar - Organic Bazaar will bring together the consumers and the producers of organic and traditional farming products. This is an innovation in local marketing of organic produce.
    SAARC Trading House clearly will be much more than a marketing campaign – it will be an internationally recognized competitiveness driver; an impetus for economic growth, employment creation, social change and greater overall prosperity.
