The fair, inaugurated by Commerce Minister Altaf Hossain Chowdhury and his Sri Lankan counterpart Jeyaraj Fernandopulle in Colombo on January 20 has received a wide media coverage by the local print and electronic media.
A good number of Sri Lankan nationals as well as businessmen, buying houses and high officials visited the stalls, said a press release Monday.
