January 24: The global import of collage paintings in 2018 was worth US$ 549.7 million (Rs 62.66 billion), according to ITC Trade Map. Developed countries are the chief importers of these artifacts.
Nepal has also been exporting considerable amount of collage paintings. As the Nepali collage paintings have its own uniqueness, the country can establish its own brand in the international market. This can significantly boost the export of such products from Nepal. But the government should ensure preservation of art and culture and focus on institutional development of this form of art.
