ITAUKEI women who hold chiefly titles in iTaukei communities will be publicly recognised at the first ever Fijian women's expo.

Minister for Women Dr Jiko Luveni said a seminar called the Marama Ni Yavusa seminar would be held to allow them to understand their roles and empower women in their communities upon the completion of the expo.

"This is the first time we will bring together traditional leaders and we want to make them feel important by meeting and sharing experiences and provide them training for better communication skills so they can be effective so when they go back they will be able to take control of the traditional position they have inherited."

The expo, to be held at the Vodafone Arena from August 6-8, is expected to attract about 3000 women and is going to be the first and the biggest of its kind in Fiji.

Women who produce handicraft items made from Fijian raw materials will have a chance to showcase their talents at the three-day event.
