  • Description

    THE 1969 HANOVER INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR WAS OPENED TODAY (SATURDAY) BY WEST GERMANY'S ECONOMICS MINISTER PROFESSOR KARL SCHILLER. FINAL PREPARATIONS WERE MADE YESTERDAY BY THE 5276 EXHIBITORS FROM 31 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

    THE HANOVER FAIR IS THE WORLD'S LARGEST INDUSTRIAL SHOW. IT CLOSES ON MAY 4TH, AND IT IS EXPECTED THAT MANY THOUSANDS OF FOREIGN BUSINESSMEN WILL VISIT IT. THIS YEAR THERE ARE SLIGHTLY FEWER EXHIBITORS THAN IN 1968, BUT THE PROPORTION OF FOREIGN FIRMS REPRESENTED HAS RISEN. THIS YEAR 1048 FOREIGN FIRMS HAVE COME TO THE FAIR AS COMPARED WITH 959 LAST YEAR, BUT THE FAIR IS STILL PREDOMINANTLY A CHANCE FOR LOCAL FIRMS TO EXHIBIT THEIR GOODS TO FOREIGN BUYERS.

    THE FAIR COMES AT A TIME WHEN WEST GERMANY'S BOOMING ECONOMY AND THE IMPORT SUBSIDY INTRODUCED BY THE BONN GOVERNMENT LAST NOVEMBER HAVE MADE THE WEST GERMAN MARKET MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN EVER TO FOREIGN MANUFACTURERS. FRANCE HAS THE MOST EXHIBITORS AMONG THE FOREIGN COUNTRIES, FOLLOWED BY GREAT BRITAIN AND ITALY. EAST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES ARE STRONGLY REPRESENTED TOO AS ARE JAPAN AND THE UNITED STATES.

    THE FAIR COVERS 4.4 MILLION SQUARE FEET (400,000 SQUARE METRES). THERE ARE 28 EXHIBITION HALLS AND MANY OUTSIDE STANDS SHOWING A VERY WIDE RANGE OF INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS.
