National Trade and Cultural Show opens in Honiara today

The week-long annual Trade show starts this morning. The event will start with a float parade from the Kukum Campus field to Town Ground, where official opening activities will be taking place.

The Trade show will be officially opened by the Governor General Sir Nathaniel Waena.

This year's events combine with the World Coconut Day, the Annual Women's Week and the Trade and Cultural show. Activities will be held at the Town ground and the Cultural Village.

Meanwhile, the Trade show sub-committees have promised a variety of exhibitions and activities.

Nick Nonga of the Agricultural sub-committee says the Agriculture division will exhibit a lot of its usual services including quarantine awareness about the Giant African Snail among others.

Charles Matangani who looks after entertainment says they will move modern and traditional music entertainment between Town Ground and Cultural village during the entire week.

Alfred Ramo who heads the Coconut Day activities says a highlight this year will be the launching of a coconut stamp. The new coconut stamp will be launched today. The launching of coconut bio-fuel, produced by Solomon Tropical Products has been scheduled for Thursday. Prizes for speeches by high school students about Coconut will be handed out on Friday.
