There is a gap in the local tourist market for value-added goods. Curios are available in abundance at the National Zoological Gardens nearby the Panagos Building, but these are of an inferior quality and are unsuitable for export. A craft node at which the local and tourist communities intersect creates an ideal platform for related activities through which these communities can support each other. At this node, training of local talent for the production and trade of value-added craft products will take place. These activities must be undertaken at the same locale so that each activity can respond quickly to the other activities.Please note that the different chapters are not bookmarked and therefore not linked.
