The 34th edition of the Luanda International Fair (Filda 2018) will be held in Luanda bay in the first two weeks of July, and Portugal is expected once again to be the most represented foreign country, Angolan newspaper Expansão reported.
The event, considered to be the largest business exchange in the country, will bring together companies from different sectors of activity and exhibitors are expected to exceed the 207 registered for the 2017 edition.
After the litigation involving the Luanda International Fair (FIL), the company that promoted the events, the Ministry of Economy, through the Institute of Business Development (IFE) decided to take on the responsibility for organising the exhibitions itself.
The newspaper also wrote that several dates are being considered, all pointing to the fair being held between 10 and 15 July.
The 33rd edition of Filda took place from 26 to 30 July 2017 and welcomed more than 25,000 visitors who saw the products showcased by the 225 participating Angolan and foreign companies.
The 2016 edition of Filda, scheduled for July and later postponed to November due to the crisis in Angola, was not held that year because exhibitor registration was low, the Luanda International Fair announced at the time. (macauhub)
