Vision of FORHEX

“Everyman has to do
His own growing up
No matter how tall
His Grandfather was”

The Federation of Rajasthan Handicraft Exporters with it’s growth of last 10 years, as it’s base, firmly believes in forging ahead with renewed strength, enthusiasm & motivation, to achieve the objective & the vision that it’s members have carefully worked on as “One United Team.” With our secretariat & own premises in place, the next ten years should see us growing in strength & excellence.

We would be working towards creating greater synergy levels with–in the members, with the Govt. bodies and all trade related bodies. In more concrete terms, the Federation has plans to be a part of the infrastructural development plans for Handicrafts in the State.

While there has been acceptance of FORHEX by international bodies like the Centre for Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI), of the Govt. of Netherlands, who have also taken up FORHEX as their “Business Support Organization”; efforts will be channelized for more & greater co-operation by virtue of such associations in other countries across the world. Thus, allowing the members, the opportunities to update themselves & their products.

Specific programmes in areas of designing, the materials used in crafts, efforts to explore new & hidden crafts, trade related workshop, personal development programmes & group participation are all in the pipeline.

A databank is also being developed by FORHEX Secretariate for information to be available to members on Local & International Designers, Domestic & International Trade Fairs & Industry related information.

The Federation is also gaining from the intellect of visionaries like Dr. Lalit K Panwar, who is now our Honorary Member.

Plans are afoot to develop a PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT CENTRE with State - of - Art Technology & Human Resource to give the much needed R&D boost to the industry.

At the same time, all key issues, which need representation, will have our utmost attention, as always, as a responsible body.

We realize our social obligations. There are some concrete proposals for execution of social work in the Handicraft sector, wherein we intend involving our better halves & our children too.

The vision is to create and propagate through FORHEX, craftsmanship and excellence in our ideas, products, services, dealing, policies, market & infrastructure.

We wish to thank all the members of FORHEX for their contribution in making FORHEX what it is today. We would especially like to thank the Executive Body Members & EPCH for their constant efforts & supports.
