The National Women’s Expo this year made total earnings of up to $557,000 despite the Ministry of Women having spent a total of
$610,000 to stage this year’s Women’s Expo.
This was highlighted by the Director for Women Selai Korovusere while speaking at the opening of the National Women’s Expo Lessons Learnt Workshop at Holiday Inn this morning.
Korovusere also highlighted that this year 340 women earned more than $430,000 during the National Women’s Expo.
In 2014, 1,516 women earned $133,152, in 2015 , 570 women earned $314,133.20, while in 2017, 475 women earned $402,469.35.
Korovusere says the two day workshop will be beneficial to enable the very people behind the organizing of the Women’s Expo and three divisional craft shows to discuss ways to improve these Expo’s in the future.
She revealed that the first day is all about the staff of the department of Women, as they will be having internal discussions and brain storming on things that were carried out during the National Women’s Expo, things that went well and things that can be improved on.
Korovusere says their aim is that at the end of the National Women's Expo more women are being 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.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
