Angola: Sixth edition of Constrói Angola starts on 16 October

16 September 2008

Luanda, Angola, 16 Sept – The 6th edition of Constrói Angola – Construction, Public Works and Safety Fair, is due to take place between 16 and 19 October in Luanda and already has over two hundred companies registered to take part, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

“When there are 30 days to go until the launch of the event, the organisers – Fil and Arena Direct – already have over 200 companies registered, with a high number of Angolan companies taking part,” said the statement, adding that Portugal was once again the likely leader in terms of number of companies taking part.

Taking into consideration the growing number of registrations, the statement said, the organisers plan to expand the area reserved for the fair, particularly the outside area next to pavilions I and II, in order to make it possible to display heavy machinery.

In 2007 at least 230 companies took part in Constrói Angola and the vast majority of these have confirmed their presence at this year’s event.

Estimates point to at least 15,000 visitors to last year’s fair. (macauhub)
