8 July 2008

Maputo, Mozambique, 8 July – The 44th edition of the Maputo International fair (Facim/2008), due to take place from 1 to 7 September, already has the confirmed participation of 12 countries, Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias reported.

A source from the fair’s organisers, Sociedade Gestora de Feiras, Exposições e Congressos (Sogex) told the paper that at least four foireign companies (including one from Pakistan and two from Portugal), as well as 73 Mozambican companies had registered to take part in the fair on an individual basis.

“Considering that there are still around two months to go for the fair to begin we believe that national and foreign participation will certainly increase,” the source said.

Last year, 15 countries and 220 companies (105 of which were Mozambican) took part in the 43rd edition of Facim.

Facim is held annually and makes it possible for businesspeople and the general public to find out about the stage of development achieved by the companies present and the opportunities these provide. (macauhub)
