Dhaka International Trade Fair (DITF) has been extended by two more days at the request of businessmen and now it will continue till February 6.

Jafar Uddin, the Secretary of Commerce, said this on Monday evening. Earlier, on January 27, the trade fair was extended till February 4.

He said the fair was again extended by two days in at the request of traders. Traders also demanded an extension of time due to make up for the time lost due to the Dhaka city polls.

The businessmen earlier demanded of the government to extend the tenure of the fair since it was closed for three days on January 10 and 31 and February 1.

Following the demand, the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB) had initially extended the timeframe of the fair till February 4. But, with the latest extension, the DITF will now continue till February 6.

This year's trade fair has 483 stalls and pavilions and 21 countries have participated in the fair.
