Addressing media persons at the inaugural programme, GM, Directorate of Industries and Commerce, P Tokugha Achumi stated that the expo was held with an aim to help weavers showcase their products, earn revenue and to provide source of employment opportunity for them.  With regards to differences of prices of products in the stalls from those being sold in the market, Achumi maintained that prices would vary from those in the market as most products sold in the expo were all hand woven.

He informed media persons that all stall owners would receive some amount of incentives from the department. 

Achumi further stated that only two stalls from Assam were able to turn up for the expo and in this, another official from the department added that weavers from Manipur were not able to attend the expo due to the bad road conditions. 

It may be noted that 30 stalls would be set up in the expo with each stall selling different handloom products such as Naga shawls, waist coats, neck ties, hand woven bed sheets, traditional accessories, etc. The expo will continue for 14 days and would culminate on February 28.
