The fair, which is being held at Amritsar, will conclude on December 10.
“We are getting very positive responses from the visitors. We have had over 100 visitors so far at our counter, of which over 60 have made purchases. People, especially women, are very fond of Pakistani duppattas, and are ready to buy the different types that we have for sale at our counter. It is just the beginning of the fair, and the response is more than what we had expected,” says Irfan Begum, a Pakistan-based participant.
