  • This was one of the most productive fairs I have visited.

  • I wonder if the projects mentioned will come to life.

      Thank you for the comments. In average, the gestation period of these project proposals is quite long. However a few of the projects in the past fairs have been funded in amount totaling over 144 million. For the other project proposals especially those in the recent fair, we will continue to find ways in channeling them to appropriate agencies and organizations for funding. Again thank you for the comments and a Merry Christmas.
