The trade associations all over the Country led by CAIT should evolve a working strategy to extend their helping hand in making available the right market and right value of products of such women. Not only, the traders should also handhold various startup’s especially of the women. She emphasised that festivals in particular are the best occasion when art & skills of down trodden women are most visible and it’s easy to identify the products and the women entrepreneurs to encourage them to do more & big business.She said that women empowerment is one of the prime vision of PM Shri Narendra Modi and if it happens with the wide structure of trade associations in all parts of the Country, the whole gamut of trade and commerce of the Country will have positive radical changes.
