This year’s expo will also launch the Green Pavilion to showcase products of FAME exhibitors and up and coming manufacturers that are Green and Sustainable.
Philippine Ambassador to Australia H.E. Ma. Hellen B. De La Vega said, “I was informed by CITEM that Australia is one of the top visiting countries to Manila FAME held twice a year in Manila. CITEM has been receiving a lot of interest from Australian buyers especially in the home décor and gift sectors. There is plenty of opportunities for Australian buyers who would like to do business with small and medium enterprises and artisans.”
