Woman calls on Fiji to improve trade show

Dawn Gibson

JENNY Wal has brought with her the talent and the voices of grassroots people from Papua New Guinea to Fiji through selling and displaying products from her homeland. She is one of the 90 plus exhibitors displaying and selling their products at the Trade Pasifika show 2014 in Suva.

While she has managed to sell almost all the paintings, bags and coffee beans she brought with her, she said Fiji needed to work on making the show better next time around.

Particularly for women like her who have frequented trade shows similar to this one the world over.

"When I found out I was coming here, I told a lot of the grassroots people in my community who have great artwork and craftwork to give me their products so I can come and sell them here," said Ms Wal.
