Under the plan, by 2020 each district or city will have from three to five handicraft villages and two or three special products.
The province aims to reach 16-18 per cent annual growth in the industry, with revenue estimated to reach VND660 billion (US$33 million) by 2015 and VND1.4 trillion ($70 million) by 2020.
In addition, the sector is expected to create nearly 12,000 jobs by 2015, with a total of 25,000 by 2020.
Per capita income would reach VND1.8-2 million ($90-100) per month by 2015 and VND2.8-3 million ($140-150) by 2020.
Provincial authorities said the plan would help promote economic and social development, and preserve traditional festivals and ethnic minority cultures.
Ninh Thuan would also create policies to support the training of human resources, develop handicraft villages, and build infrastructure for the villages and industrial groups.
The province has also called for trade promotion and capital mobilisation for the development of the handicraft industry.
Total investment capital for the plan is estimated to reach VND2.4 trillion ($120 million).
