Int'l trade fair to remain closed Friday

The Dhaka International Trade Fair will remain closed on Friday, a day before the city polls, according to a decision by the Election Commission, reports bdnews24.com.

Dhaka residents will head to polling centres to choose mayors and councillors for two city corporations on Saturday, a public holiday for the election.

The EC sent a letter to the commerce ministry to relay its decision to the organisers of the fair, a key annual event for businesses and shoppers.
