A two day Trade Fair in Trincomalee district, turned out to be a huge success, as more than 5,000 spectators visited the exhibition. The expo which concluded on April 10, was organized by Enterprise Resource Centre (ERC), a project initiated by Muslim Aid Sri Lanka in collaboration with AmeriCares.

There were a wide range of products displayed for the onlookers, right from handicrafts, bamboo artifacts and furniture to paintings and trendy garments. The fair turned out to be a great platform for the participants in order to get direct orders from domestic buyers.

Along with the exhibition, various competitions like t-shirt designing and poster making were also organized to popularize the event among the people. The items kept for display were highly appreciated by the visitors.

ERC, has been training the underprivileged craftsmen for a long time. Many of the artisans who profited from the participation, were earlier given professional assistance in entrepreneurship by the centre.

For boosting the handicraft sector in region ERC is providing financial help to artisans. It is believed that, with center's initiative nearly 100 small scale enterprises will come in Trincomalee district.
