NUKU‘ALOFA, Tonga (March 25, 2002 - Radio and TV Tonga/PINA Nius Online)---Tongan handicraft makers have expressed interest in exchanging skills with regional counterparts following the Tongan Trade Fair 2002 in Nuku‘alofa, Tonga’s capital.

The exhibition featured handicraft items and other locally made goods from Samoa and Niue and from the Tongan areas of Vava‘u, Niuafo‘ou and Niuatoputapu.

Local women told Radio Tonga News that the participation of regional countries enabled them to learn new styles for jewelry, baskets, fans, carvings, and other items.

Secretary of the Tonga Chamber of Commerce and Industries Christine Uta‘atu said a bigger hall likely would be required for next year's trade fair event.
