  • Description

    THE LATEST ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR -- THE 16TH -- OPENED RECENTLY IN DAMASCUS, SYRIA.

    THE FAIR COMBINES THE INDUSTRY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP OF THE ARAB COUNTRIES AND TURKEY WITH THAT OF THE EASTERN EUROPEAN COMMUNIST COUNTRIES, INCLUDING YUGOSLAVIA. THE CONTENTS OF THE PAVILIONS SHOW THAT THE PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES REGARD DAMASCUS AS AN IMPORTANT CENTRE FOR THE DISPLAY OF THEIR LATEST EXPORT PRODUCTS.

    AMONG THE ATTRACTIONS AT THE FAIR IS A SPECIAL DISPLAY PUT OF BY SYRIAN CRAFTSMEN TO SHOW THEIR SKILL IN WEAVING, WOODWORKING, KNIFE-MAKING AND GLASSWARE.

    A FOOTNOTE TO THIS YEAR'S FAIR WAS PROVIDED BY AN ISRAELI WOMAN WHO WAS AMONG THOSE HELD IN DAMASCUS WHEN AN AIRCRAFT OF TRANS WORLD AIRLINES WAS HI-JACKED TO SYRIA YESTERDAY (FRIDAY). MRS EVE FREUD, WHO WAS TRAVELLING WITH HER 15-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER DALIA, TODAY (SATURDAY) PRAISED THE TREATMENT THEY HAD AND SAID SHE WISHED SHE COULD STAY LONGER IN DAMASCUS TO SEE THE TRADE FAIR.
