The trade fair and exhibition is organised by the Export Development Board (EDB) on a concept of MP Namal Rajapaksa.

Chairman, EDB Janaka Ratnayaka said that 1,500 exporters export 4000 varieties while a total of 550 exporters contribute to 85 percent of the export revenue.

Around 150 exporters will exhibit their products and services at the exhibition.

"The objectives of the Expo are to show the potential of our exports to the diplomatic community,stimulate potential entrepreneurs to become exporters and change the attitude of people towards our products", said the chairman. He said that this is the launching pad for next year’s Expo.

As the diplomatic community will visit the exhibition and trade fair, we will be able to attract the best buyers next year.

It is also planned to launch the e-directory together with the SLT Rainbow pages.

This will give publicity to exports and exporters free by having a company profile of each exporter as well as the product profile. This will benefit the exporter community. He said that this is the first step of having virtual trade exhibitions in the future. In addition people will also get an opportunity to buy products within the limitations of the exporters.

The exhibition and trade fair will be open from 10 am to 10 pm.
