Dhaka International Trade Fair2024: A Noteworthy Event


Dewan Al Mehedi

The Dhaka International Trade Fair (DITF) is currently taking place at the Bangabandhu Bangladesh-China Friendship Exhibition Centre in Purbachal.

This prestigious event attracts merchants from both local and international markets. As the month-long fair is nearing its end on 20th February, it is worth exploring some of the remarkable offerings available at this grand event. Organizers have highlighted that the replica of Bangabandhu’s Dhanmondi house stands out as one of the primary highlights at the DITF.

Foreign pieces of jewellery

The Iranian jewelry market showcases an abundance of gemstones, including emeralds, rubies, zircon, and topaz, available in diverse shapes, colors, sizes, and qualities.

In comparison, Indian gemstones tend to be more affordable, starting at approximately BDT.1,000/- per stone, whereas the African counterparts, known for their clarity and pristine nature, come at a higher price. Once you have chosen a stone that appeals to you, select a silver design, and witness the skilled craftsmanship of Persian jewelers as they create your personalized jewelry.

However, it is essential to engage in fair negotiations to ensure a reasonable price, particularly when it comes to purchasing gemstones. Jannatul Ferdous Purnima told REDTIMES “I do not particularly appreciate ornaments, but I am currently on the lookout for a unique one to gift my younger sister on her wedding in Kisoregonj.”
