(MENAFN - Arab News) Six hundred Saudi women are displaying their products and services here including Hijazi crafts jewelry paintings dresses perfumes sweets abayas and web design.

The three-day productive families' exhibition being held for the second time in Ramadan showcases the work of local women.

Princess Mashail bint Muqrin who launched the event on Wednesday said it would help women make a living from their own home-based businesses and contribute to the economy.

She said many Saudi women were expanding their businesses from traditional arts and crafts to a wider range of products which could be sold in other markets.

The event is being held with the Makkah governorate and Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Eman Abdulshokor coordinator of the event said 600 Saudi families are exhibiting their products and over 10000 families are expected to attend. She said the aim of the event is to promote the products of citizens. It was an ideal time for families to visit and buy gifts for Ramadan and Eid she said.

Abdulshokor said the participants are helping to create jobs in #SaudiArabia and contributing to economic growth. Supporting these businesses was an investment in the Saudi economy and should not be seen as a social responsibility project.

Abdulshokor said Princess Mashail wants to have similar events in other regions during Ramadan to promote enterprising Saudi women. Makkah Gov. Prince Mishaal bin Abdullah supports the event she said.
