Pakistan participates in UN Bazar
UNITED NATIONS—A range of Pakistani products, including food and merchandise, were on display and sale – on Wednesday at the annual United Nations International Bazaar at UN Headquarters in New York. Braving cold weather and intermittent rain, a large number of people visited the bazar, which was organized by the UN Women’s Guild (UNWG) in collaboration with permanent missions accredited to the United Nations.
The event featured cuisine from around the world as well as fine arts and handicrafts. Pakistan had two stalls, one for food and other featuring clothing and a number of other handcrafted items.
The wife of UN secretarygeneral, Ban Soon-taek, who is a patron of the Bazar, visited one of the Pakistani stall offering dresses and other items. She was greeted by Pakistan UN Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi. Mrs. Ban praised the quality and sophistication of the Pakistani products.
Meanwhile, the other stall — featuring biryani, chicken tikka and kebabs — attracted big crowds. The food was sold out in no time. —APP
