US trade fair: Local silk products showcased

US trade fair
DOMESTICALLY-produced silk products will be exhibited at a fair in California, United States, during the new year, according to Nhean Chanveasna, executive director of Women for Women Foundation, based in Kandal province’s Takhmao district.

The organisation - which employs 40 disabled women and has orders of about US$5000 per month - aims to seek export partners for its handicrafts through the fair’s exposure, she said.

“Many visitors were interested in previous years, but this year, we hope to gain large partners.”

Ngouy Suely, executive director of California-based Khmer Girls in Action, said the organisation would assist in showcasing the silk products.
