A five-day trade show was opened on 17 October in the City Hall of Myitkyina Township in Kachin State by the Smart Business Group.
Chief Justice of Kachin State High Court U Tu Jar, State Transport, Communications and Electricity Minister U Win Nyunt, State Development Affairs Minister U Naw Li, also known as U Zat Khaung Kam Ree, and the event organizing committee chairman formally cut a ribbon to open the ceremony. Then, they visited the booths.
The trade show was held for the second time in Myitkyina Township.
“We convene trade shows mostly in Yangon, Mandalay, and other regions. But, we’ve found people here are interested in trade shows, and so, we convened one for the first time here in Myitkyina last April. The companies are also happy to exhibit their products at the trade show here. So, we are holding the trade show for the second time here in Myitkyina. We are showcasing products which are more suitable for this region. It took us at least one-and-a-half months’ preparation for holding this show,” said Daw Shwe Zin Win, a member of the event organizing committee from the Smart Business Group.
The five-day trade show is being held from 17 to 21 October, from 9 am to 9 pm.
At the expo, more than 100 shops will showcase products, including electrical apparatuses, personal goods, food, warm clothes, and medicines. Moreover, visitors will have a chance to win about 30 items through the lucky draw, including gold and jewellery, according to the event organizing committee. —Myo Myint Soe (State IPRD)
