CITF-2017 kicks off Sunday
The month-long Chittagong International Trade Fair (CITF) is going to be inaugurated Sunday at the Railway Polo Ground in Chittagong city. The Chittagong Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCCI) organised the fair for the 25th time in the premier port city. The CCCI organised a press conference on Saturday morning at the Agrabad World Trade Centre to mark the inauguration. While addressing the press conference, CCCI President and Adviser to the fair Mahbubul Alam said they had already completed all preparations for the fair. The chairman of the fair committee and senior vice-president of CCCI, Nurun Newaz Salim, announced at the press conference that Industries Minister Amir Hossain Amu will inaugurate the fair as the chief guest. Also attending as special guests will be Chittagong City Corporation Mayor AJM Nasir Uddin and FBBCI Acting President Shafiul Islam. More than 450 enterprises will be participating in the fair which will remain open for visitors from 10am till 10pm. “The objective of the fair is to expand and promote the market for locally manufactured goods. Besides, the fair also plays an important role for the expansion and promotion of small and medium enterprises,” said Nurun Newaz Salim. “This time India, Turkey, Pakistan and Iran are participating in the fair. Thailand is participating in the fair as a partner country. We are also expecting ministers, government high officials, ambassadors and high commissioners from various countries to visit the month-long fair, which will create opportunities for expansion in the market for locally produced goods,” added Salim. “We have also taken round the clock security measures to ensure law and order on the fair premises. Temporary police camps and CCTV cameras have been set up on the premises. A temporary branch of Standard Bank has also been installed to ensure safe transactions for participating enterprises,” Salim said. The entry fee for visiting the fair has been fixed at Tk10 for each person.
