Top Spots For Expo

Winners in this year’s Women Divisional Craft Show will be guaranteed a fully sponsored spot at the National Women’s Expo in October.

Speaking at the media launch of the Women’s Expo 2015, the Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Rosy Akbar, said: “Instead of bringing all women’s groups to the capital, we are organising divisional shows and competition.

“Groups or individual women judged to have potential will be provided advice on how to better their products to be eligible for the ‘Fijian-made’ Brand and stand a chance of partial sponsorship.”

With this year’s theme set as ‘Connecting Women to Markets-Make it Happen’, the Ministry hopes to excel the mindsets of our women and propel their talents and skills to the export market.

Ms Akbar said the novelty of the expo served to boost the lifetime confidence of our women.

“As we head into Mother’s Day weekend, I take this opportunity to wish all our mothers, grandmothers, aunts,sisters and niece a Happy Mother’s Day, and each and every day must provide an opportunity to celebrate women’s contribution into our society.”

The 2nd National Women’s Expo will be held from the October 14 to 16 at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.
