The Thailand Fashion Fair kicked off at Paragon Shopping Center on street 214, west of the Royal Place in Phnom Penh.

The 5-day fair has cosmetics, clothes and shoes, along with food and other items on display.

Jiranun Wongmongkol, minister counselor commercial at the Thai Embassy in Phnom Penh, said there are over 10 Thai companies participating in the fair, which is supported by the Thai Embassy and Department of Export Promotion in Thailand.

“This is for fashion and cosmetics, while the previous fair was comprised of general goods,” she said, adding that “we hope it can attract about 300-500 guests per day”.

Ung Leumang, sale supervisor for Nattakan Company which is participating in the fair, said that his company brought plastic items to sell with the expectation of earning more than US$1,000 during the fair.
