  • Description

    THE ALGERIAN LEADER, HOUARI BOUMEDIENNE, OFFICIALLY OPENED HIS COUNTRY'S THIRD ANNUAL TRADE FAIR IN ALGIERS YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). COUNTRIES TAKING PART ARE THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, EAST GERMANY, BELGIUM, BULGARIA, THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, THE IVORY COAST, SPAIN, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, TUNISIA, THE SOVIET UNION, YUGOSLAVIA, ITALY, LIBYA, MOROCCO, PAKISTAN, SWITZERLAND, AND SYRIA.

    AFTER OPENING THE FAIR, M. BOUMEDIENNE VISITED ALL THE PAVILIONS EXCEPT THE UNOFFICIAL WEST GERMAN DISPLAY WHICH STANDS NEAR A FAR LARGER EXHIBITION BY EAST GERMANY. WESTERN DIPLOMATS REPORTED THAT THE LARGE SOVIET STAND WAS "MORE BOURGEOIS", WITH A GREATER VARIETY OF CONSUMER GOODS THAT LAST YEAR, WHILE THAT OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA WAS MORE AUSTERE.

    NOTABLY ABSENT FROM THIS YEAR'S FAIR WERE FRANCE BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES. ABOUT 80 PER CENT OF ALGERIA'S FOREIGN TRADE IS WITH FRANCE, UNREPRESENTED THIS YEAR BECAUSE OF ADMINISTRATIVE DIFFICULTIES AND THE HEAVY COSTS OF ITS WIDE RANGING TRADE INTERESTS. BRITAIN HAS NO DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH ALGERIA.

    UNITED STATES OFFICIALS SAID THEIR COUNTRY ATTENDED FAIRS EVERY TWO YEARS BECAUSE OF THE EXPENSE, AND WAS REPRESENTED IN ALGERIA LAST YEAR.
