Deputising for Her Majesty Queen Rania, Minister of Social Development Basma Ishaqat on Wednesday inaugurated the Bint Bladi Expo in support of productive Jordanian women.
“We seek to enhance the performance of Jordanian women to manage their own projects and continue with their productive activities,” Ishaqat said in a statement carried by the Jordan News Agency, Petra.
The expo fell under the Royal Directives to establish a productive state by providing women with a platform to showcase their products to potential donors, according to Petra.
The expo targets women from across the Kingdom to offer them a free-of-charge space to present their products at the largest exhibition of its kind.
Organisers said that the four-day exhibition also aims at creating investment opportunities for women, according to Petra.
Around 1,700 women working in fashion, textile, foodstuff and handicraft sectors will be participating in the Bint Bladi fair
