Trade expo set

A trade expo, the first run under the One Village-One Product (OVOP) scheme, will take place this month with more than 70 display booths planned for local entrepreneurs. The National Committee of OVOP will host the event in front of Wat Botum in Phnom Penh from May 29 to 30 in a bid to push local production, OVOP official Taing Vantha said Thursday. It’s hoped that the event will provide a chance for small businesses to promote their products and advertise their services. About 250 students will be invited from universities to view a slide show of products hailing from 24 cities and provinces. They will also watch demonstrations on how to make clay pots and produce carvings. The event will finish with a concert.
