DITF ends today

January 31, 2011

The 16th Dhaka International Trade Fair will end today as the government has decided not to extend the duration of the fair.
Commerce minister Faruk Khan will announce the closing of the fair at a ceremony at the fair venue at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar in the capital today.
Officials said that although the duration of the month-long fair had been extended in previous years, this year the government decided not to extend the fair as the Secondary School Certificate examinations would begin on February 1 and the Cricket World Cup would commence on February 19.
The expo this year faced a downtrend in trading at the opening half but the fair got momentum in the later part with the increase in the number of visitors.
The fair management authorities said around 60,000 to 70,000 people visited the fair each day.
A total of 531 local, foreign, and multinational companies from 30 countries including Bangladesh participated in the fair, jointly organised by the Export Promotion Bureau and the commerce ministry.
