The Gambia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) will today, February 14th celebrate the famous St. Valentine's Day, which is a day dedicated for love and care, at the sixth edition of the Trade Fair currently underway at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

The Trade Fair started on February 2nd with about 200 international and national participants showcasing the products and services of their various businesses.

Speaking to the Daily Observer, the Chamber's Corporate Affairs manager, Beatrice A prom, said the day will avail them the opportunity to increase more fun and fanfare at the Trade Fair. She noted that since the Day coincided with the Fair, they have decided to celebrate it in a grand style by inviting some local artistes to entertain their visitors.

The corporate manager further disclosed that the last three days of the Fair will be characterised by much entertainment; as artistes such as Mandinmory, Mighty Joe and Gee will play during this period.

Prom further said the closing ceremony on Saturday is set aside as "Gambia Day", in which Gambians will dress in traditional style to showcase their culture to the different multinationals taking part in the Fair. Local Gambian food, she added, will be served in the form of a food festival.

Prom said it is the most successful especially in terms of organisation and publicity.

"Everybody can attest to it that GCCI has done very well in making sure that there is heavy media presence," she said.
