The first national and international exhibition for women, called Khadijat-ul-Kubra Empowerment Exhibition, was opened in Kabul.
The head of the Women's Chamber of Commerce and Industry said the purpose of holding this exhibition is to encourage women artisans and businesswomen, and said that 850 women have booths.
At the same time, analysts said holding such exhibitions are beneficial for the sake of marketing and the development of women's handicrafts.
Organizers of the International Women’s Exhibition said that this exhibition will continue for 7 days and the artisans and business women will exhibit their handicrafts.
The head of the Women's Chamber of Commerce and Industry said holding this exhibition is important for the introduction and marketing of handicrafts and other women's products.
"They should be encouraged more, more work should be done on their licenses and the identities of their products, more attention should be paid to them, and it is necessary to be in this market format," said Salma Yousufzai, head of the women’s chamber of commerce and industry.
On the other hand, some economic analysts said that holding this kind of special exhibition for women is beneficial for the development of handicrafts and creating more opportunities to introduce and market products produced by women.
"In order to speed up the business process of some women entrepreneurs, the government can use a series of business ideas, such as reducing the amount of taxes, paying a series of fixed IDs, and reducing the amount of customs tariffs so that they can better export their business goods to foreign countries," said Abdul Zohor Mudaber, an economic analyst.
"Women's access to foreign markets can be effective in improving the further growth of their business," said Mir Shekib Mir, an economic analyst.
The International Exhibition of Khadijat-ul-Kubra, which was launched by the Women's Chamber of Commerce and Industry and its partner institutions in the capital, will continue for seven days, during which various products produced by women from all provinces will be displayed in 850 booths.
