"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.
