The Bangladesh High Commission in Abuja, Nigeria has participated in the Kaduna International Trade Fair—organized by the Kaduna Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture—for the first time. The event took place between March 29 and April 7, 2019.

Dr. Okechukwu Enyinna Enelama, minister for Industry, Trade and Investments of Nigeria, inaugurated the fair on March 29, 2019. Md Shameem Ahsan, Bangladesh high commissioner to Nigeria was present—along with diplomats from other countries, local dignitaries, and the business leaders—at the inaugural ceremony which marked the 40th yearly event.

Bangladesh's stall received the Best Foreign Participant Award, and a crest was handed over, ceremonially, on the concluding day, by Mr. Abidul Yazid, patron of the trade fair.

Pharmaceuticals, ceramics, jute and leather products, RMG and knitwear, tea, jute leaf tea, electrical appliances, light engineering, plastic and melamine products, spice & curry powder, pickles, food items, snacks, pearl items, saris (muslin, silk), nakshi kantha, handicrafts, among others, were on display; these drew huge crowds each day. 

The High Commission is in the process of launching a commercial display centre at the chancery soon, to showcase exportables to the visitors and Nigeria's potential importers and investors.
