Family support is crucial if we want women to succeed in economic development, says Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Mereseini Vuniwaqa.

She was speaking yesterday while opening the 9th Serua provincial craft show in Navua.

She said the craft show depicted the level of commitment invested in maintaining traditional values and talents by women artisans of this nation.

“From the outset, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely acknowledge the tremendous support by your loved ones at home that has enabled you to actively participate in today’s craft show,” she said.

“I know your attendance this morning does not only indicate your willingness to participate in such platforms, but more importantly it shows your ability to capitalise on the economic opportunities provided by this platform as a means of livelihood for your families and your community as a whole,” she said.
