UNITED NATIONS: A range of Pakistani products, both food and merchandise, were on “display and for sale” on Thursday at the annual United Nations International Bazaar held at the rain-swept UN Headquarters in New York.
Despite wet and dreary weather, a number of people visited the bazaar, which was organized by the UN Women’s Guild (UNWG) in collaboration with permanent missions accredited to the United Nations.
The event featured cuisines from around the world as well as fine arts and handicrafts.
Marijcke Thomson, wife of the president of the UN General Assembly, was among those who visited the bazaar.
Pakistan had two stalls, one for food and other — the main one — sold a variety of items, including pashmina shawls, leather document cases and velvet wallets but the product that caught the imagination of visitors were the salt lamps.
