Fair trade certification gathers momentum
Since the last update, where I discussed the "Fair Trade Way" walk in Pondicherry, it has been a while my friends! But, I have a lot to important, positive news to share.
During two extraordinary visits to Kotagiri and Pondicherry, i noticed a healthy competition between the two towns, the hill town and costal city. Both of whom have replenished the steering groups with substantive members from business and enterprise.
While I attended a face to face steering group meeting in the iconic basement/story-telling bar at the Promenade, and shared much insight including preparation for hand-over of an appeal letter to the government. We were lucky to meet the chief minister himself.
Both the town and the city are awaiting certification.
