ONE hundred and sixty four women of Caumatalevu will showcase some of Macuata's finest and stunning handicraft items in the upcoming Rural Women's Expo scheduled to be held in Suva next week.

Soqosoqo Vakamarama Macuata secretary Kelera Tuiwainikai yesterday said this was the largest delegation of women from the province to participate in such an inaugural event.

"The women are looking forward to this trip because this is an opportunity for them to showcase their handicraft items to the nation," Ms Tuiwainikai said.

"For some of them, this will be their first trip to Suva and they are all looking forward to be part of the expo.

"Apart from just showcasing their items, they have also been encouraged to sell the items at a reasonable cost.

"Some of the items are very unique because they are specially made and their significance represents Macuata.

Ms Tuiwainikai said the women would leave next Monday and were expected to return on Saturday.
