Companies representing three foreign countries attend Cape Verde’s International Construction and Housing Fair

20 May 2013

The 4th edition of the Cape Verde International Construction and Housing Fair (FICH) is due to be held from 7 to 9 June in Praia, and will be attended by companies from Portugal, Brazil and Spain, said the chairman of the International Cape Verde Fair (FIC).

Luís Cardoso said that the fair, which this year will focus on “Building Sustainability,” has confirmations from 50 foreign exhibitors, which will ensure a “good event” despite the current international economic climate.

The chairman of FIC said that most of the companies from Spain are from the Canary Islands, and noted that the goal was to reach 100 exhibitors.

The Cape Verdean companies that will take part in the event, mainly from the islands of Santiago, São Vicente and Sal, account for almost half of the total, and the FIC decided to reduce the sign up cost by 50 percent in order to allow more small and medium-sized companies to take part. (macauhub)
