eight_col_20160602_084933Efforts are underway in Vanuatu to offer tourists more locally-made handicrafts instead of imported trinkets from Asia.

Women who sell handicrafts at the Port Vila market have set up a co-operative society to buy quality items made in the outer islands.

The president of the Bulvanua Arts & Handicrafts Co-operative Society, Rosalie Vatu, says the co-operative will buy woven baskets, mats, fans, beads and carvings made in the islands to sell to tourists.

Ms Vatu told Don Wiseman what prompted the move.
