The creativity and resilience of the Visayan people in face of calamity will be highlighted in the 29th Negros Trade Fair which starts today, 24th of September, and will end on the 28th of September. It is held at the Glorietta Activity Center in Ayala, Makati City. Its theme for this year is "Smiles Beyond Borders" which promises to bring the finest food, fashion, furniture arts and crafts not only from Negros, but also from Cebu, Masbate, Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan and Antique.

The organizers hoped that the fair would boost livelihood in the areas ravaged first by the killer quake and Super Typhoon “Yolanda” last year.
