The 2019 North east trade fair has begun in Bauchi state with no fewer than one thousand exhibitors.
The Vice Chairman, Central Organising Committee of the fair, Bala Abubakar in an interview with Journalists, said that the exhibitors include Federal and State Government agencies as well as private companies from within and outside North East zone.
He added that Adamawa, Borno, Bauchi, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe States that constituted the North East Zone were also participating in the fair.
According to him, Benue and Plateau States that did not participate in the Abuja Fair are also participating in the fair.
Abubakar attributed the large turn out of participation and patronage by exhibitors to marketing strategies by six organizing committees of trade fair during Abuja, Lagos, Jos and Kano International trade fairs.
“The fair will create greater business connections for business communities and attract investors to see the potentials of the states and the region,” he said.
