    The central province of Thua Thien Hue will expand its traditional handicraft and craft villages in a manner that harmonizes economic development and building new-style rural areas. Under planning to 2020 and vision to 2025, attention will be paid to the restoration of several craft villages like Thanh Tien village, which makes paper flowers, the Pho Trach mattress-making village, and villages with traditional “ao dai” tailoring and lacquer making, among others. Further efforts will be made to protect Zeng weaving of the Ta Oi ethnic minority in Nam Dong and A Luoi districts, which was recognized as a national intangible cultural heritage in 2017. The province will also support craft villages in applying advanced technology into production to improve product quality and develop villages with competitive advantages that can generate jobs for local residents. Thua Thien Hue is currently home to 86 villages that focus on 57 traditional handicrafts and crafts. These villages have helped increase local incomes while pushing the restructuring of the rural economy towards industrialization and modernization.
