13 June 2019

The 35th edition of the Luanda International Fair (Filda), from 9 to 13 July, has confirmed the participation of 21 countries, three more than in 2018, announced the chairman of the company organising the event.

Bruno Albernaz, chairman of Eventos Arena, told Jornal de Angola that the countries that have already confirmed include Portugal, Germany, Indonesia, Turkey, France, India, China, United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Brazil, Japan , Belarus, Uruguay and Italy, and the territory of Macau will also attend.

The number of requests from foreign companies to participate in the event, according to Albernaz, is a good reflection of the intentions and efforts of the government to attract more investment to Angola.

“The fair has experienced not so good times, but we have been trying to give it new life since the 2017 edition, the 33rd, which took place in Luanda Bay,” said the group’s chairman.

The 34th edition of the Luanda International Fair (Filda/2018) was held at the premises of the Luanda/Bengo Special Economic Zone in Viana, an area of 28,000 square metres that is also being used for this year’s edition. (Macauhub)
