Luanda, Angola, 9 July – Portugal is set to have 120 companies taking part in the 24th edition of the Luanda International Fair (Filda), a Portuguese embassy official said in Luanda Sunday.

Speaking to Angolan news agency Angop Sunday, Fernando Anjos said that this would be Portugal’s highest ever level of participation in Filda and that Portuguese companies planned to continue with business deals in the area of exports and to identify new business opportunities in the Angolan market.

The companies taking part in Filda, Anjos said, would be from the materials and equipment, consultancy, services and professional training sectors.

There would also be companies from the information technology, electrical and electronic equipment, industrial, hospital, food and drink, publishing, accessories and clothing, furniture, decoration and textile, metalo-mechanical and travel agencies sectors.

The Portugal stand at Filda would have an information booth to provide visitors with information about Portugal’s economy in the areas of industry, retail and tourism, Anjos said.

On July 11, which will be the second day of Filda, the Portuguese authorities will host “Portugal Day at Filda,” at a ceremony to which local businesspeople, politicians, diplomats and cultural representatives will be invited.

Portugal took part in last year’s Filda with 117 companies. (macauhub)
