First women's expo

Nasik Swami
Tuesday, January 14, 2014

PLANS are in the pipeline for the country's first ever national woman's expo that would see the participation of more than 3000 women.

The expo which is expected to be held in August will be organised by the Ministry for Women.

In a statement Minister Dr Jiko Luveni said the expo would not only see the gathering of women from Fiji but also from the region.

Dr Luveni said a special taskforce had been formed and was looking after the arrangement logistics and the event would be officially launched at the end of this month.

"The ministry is delighted to organise the biggest women gathering ever in this country and we have the support of stakeholders from NGOs and corporate bodies who have given us their support to organise this national event," she said.

Dr Luveni said the three-day event would provide numerous opportunities for the women in Fiji to display and market their skills.
