According to Haidah Isnain, Trade and Industry’s Enterprise and Trade Development (ETD) head, this year’s trade fair will cater only 60 exhibitors.
A total of 102 qualified applicants joined the screening process that included the classification of products and the draw lots.
The drawing of lots was considered to be part of the screening process for the time being to avoid speculations of partiality.
Booths will be set up within 4 to 5 days. Product categories for the trade fair include, foods (viands, snacks, desserts, beverages, barbeque, native delicacies) and non-foods (ready-to-wear items).
The formal launching of the BARMM Ramadhan Trade Fair is set on May 6, 2019 inside the Office of the Chief Minister Compound. (BPI-BARMM)
