THE first National Women's Expo was hailed as an eye-opener by women from rural areas.

A number of women who were interviewed yesterday said they hoped this event would continue in the future because it set a good platform for women to discuss issues and exchange ideas that would help improve their lives.

Nailaga Women's Club coordinator Amali Racile, 65, said this expo had helped them learn a lot of new things, especially in terms of improving their business back home in Ba.

She said they were able to exchange tips with women from other provinces and shared ideas on how they could better their business.

She said they hoped the event would continue in the years to come because it was also an area where they could display their women's clubs and the work they do.

The women of Nailaga sold wild flowers at $25 a basket as well as tamarind chutney, jam and mats.

She said this was the first time for them to learn so many new things and issues regarding women and children and how lives could be improved.
