Anh Nguyen Manh Need (more than 40 years seniority) said: "Out Festival, many businesses (companies) have export orders, we have to win to keep up as early delivery. Nghi Thai agricultural commune, after harvest, people just weave rattan. "

Previously, people only simple knit items such as baskets, crates and brought to market in Vinh City and the surrounding areas. Since 2001, when Resolution 6 of the Provincial Committee on consolidating and developing traditional industries, Nghi Thai commune organized training courses weaving rattan exports. Nghi Thai workers turned to how to order professional application for creating art the soul of the culture. So many companies have invested, consumption of raw material supply output. The only people getting materials for knitting, enjoying the product.

Every year, our company exported more than a million products from rattan village to the water market.
According to Mr Phong, although the village is growing but the concern remains: "Materials may not frequent and increasingly scarce (if rain storm, flood, it is difficult to exploit). Labor educated, highly skilled yet (10% - 15% defective products). Because the majority of workers are employed in accordance with professional teaching and households should arbitrary, like they do not like it, leave, sometimes not enough to extend the contract for delivery of goods to the partners. On the other hand, in any given customers new designs and enterprises have to open more training. In 2011, to build a sustainable production model, we will develop investment projects in plant materials, import of machinery, equipment and production support for materials handling machine (instead of hand at present), to help people improve productivity.
