Angola’s first Municipalities and Cities fair ended Sunday in Luanda

7 October 2013

The 1st Angolan Municipalities and Cities Fair, held in Luanda and which ended Sunday, resulted in dozens of proposals for investment and promotion of commercial, cultural and tourism products, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

In the first four days, the Luanda International Fair (FIL), brought together businesspeople and exhibitors from 161 municipalities, seeking new business opportunities to make use of their facilities, improve the image of their area and its quality of life.

The exhibition, which was held alongside the Angolan International Tourism Fair (Okavango 2013), was a gateway for some almost “anonymous” regions, whose mining and economic resources have yet to be explored.

The Angola Municipalities and Cities Fair, organised by the Ministry for Territorial Administration and by the Luanda International Fair, showcased the great cultural, economic, tourism and social diversity of local cities and municipalities.

At the exhibition visitors were given the opportunity to find out more about rural products, which are grown across the whole of Angola, as well as about materials for health services, construction, education and the media.

Provincial governments, municipal councils, companies from the banking, real estate, insurance and services sectors exhibited their products. (macauhub)
