Market Assessment

Study of the Handmade Paper Value Chain, Viet Nam, ITC, 2010

    This value chain study was prepared by the International Trade Centre (ITC) for the programme ‘Green Production and Trade to Increase Income and Employment Opportunities for the Rural Poor’.

    It begins with an outline of the provinces where the programme intervenes, and describes the programme's target beneficiaries. It then examines in detail the handmade paper value chain and its main actors. The study includes an overview of the production process, value chain maps and a description of the institutions which play a supporting role in the market. The study also includes a constraints analysis, and building on this, proposes a strategy for upgrading the value chain.
