Local produce and culture
Rattan wareIn the 1960s, rattan ware manufacturers could be found everywhere throughout Guanmiao District. Nearly every household was involved in making rattan goods. In the 1970s, however, a number of rattan ware factories and companies chose to invest in Indonesia due to considera-tions of raw materials and labor costs. The industry started to dwindle in 1988 when the Indonesian government banned rattan exports as well as a lack of purchase orders from Japan and increasing wages.
