The three-day fashion and lifestyle expo, organised by M&M Business Communications aiming to bridge the gap between women entrepreneurs and buyers, ended on Saturday with the participation of a good number of buyers.
Manjuma Morshed, CEO of the organising company M&M Business Communications, told TBS there were more than 5,000 buyers and many visitors in the fair, which exceeded the expectations of the participating entrepreneurs from Chattogram and Dhaka
Deputy Minister for Education Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury Nowfel was present at the closing ceremony of the event as chief guest.
"This type of fair creates new woman entrepreneurs and employment. The government will provide any sort of cooperation required for women to contribute to the economy of Bangladesh," he said.
M&M Business Communications has organised 20 such fairs in Chattogram and Dhaka in the last four years. Almost 200 brands have taken part in those fairs. Similar fairs will also be organised in the future, he added.
