More than $430,000 was raked in at the 2018 4th National Women’s Expo.
Minister for Women Mereseini Vuniwaqa highlighted this while officially closing the three day event at the FMF Gymnasium.
Mrs Vuniwaqa said that apart from the improvement in the quality of products over the years, the figures tell us that women are producing more artefacts and were selling more in the last three days.
“The end of the National Women’s Expo means more women getting empowered, equipped with better knowledge, new experiences, more exposure, stronger ties with consumers and new found skills to go back and prepare not only for the next expo, but for a phase of change and new beginnings.”
Mrs Vuniwaqa stressed the expo was an area to empower Fijian women as entrepreneurs and enhance their economic participation.
“The Government promotes women’s economic empowerment, especially that of our rural women in recognition of the fact that women are central to the national development,” Mrs Vuniwaqa said.
“We know that investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth, and therefore, we are adamant to create that equitable environment that our women need.”
Furthermore, Mrs Vuniwaqa acknowledged Dr Jiko Luveni for her passion which brought together 1500 participants at the first National Women’s Expo in 2014.
