Thanks to the industrial development policies of Quang Nam, the village has made great progress. Noticeably, in 2006, a 1.8 ton great bell project of 2 artisans Duong Ngoc Truyen and Duong Ngoc Dung brought fame to the village. Besides, Phuoc Kieu craftsmen have cast over 4,000 gong sets for highland ethnic minority villages. They can not only make high-quality products but also appraise the sound of gongs well, which contributes to the village’s popularity.

Reportedly, Quang Nam will hold interesting cultural and artistic activities on the occasion of APEC 2017 taking place in Da Nang and Quang Nam. Tourism delegations are believed to visit Phuoc Kieu bronze casting craft village.
