  • Description

    THE TWELFTH INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR AT DAMASCUS, THE SYRIAN CAPITAL, OPENED THIS WEEK. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF POUNDS WORTH OF GOODS ARE BEING DISPLAYED BY OVERSEAS COUNTRIES, ANXIOUS TO CAPTURE SOME OF THE VAST POTENTIAL MARKET OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

    THE BRITISH MINISTER OF STATE AT THE FOREIGN OFFICE, MR. GEORGE THOMSON, ATTENDED THE FAIR ON TUESDAY DURING A FOUR-DAY VISIT TO DAMASCUS. MR. THOMSON IS ON A TOUR OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

    BRITAIN HAS A LARGE PAVILION AT THE FAIR. EAST EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE SOVIET UNION, RUMANIA, HUNGARY AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA ARE ALSO LARGE EXHIBITORS. THEIR EXHIBITS RANGE FROM FINELY CUT CRYSTAL WARE -- FROM CZECHOSLOVAKIA -- TO HEAVY INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY. WEST GERMANY IS ALSO A LARGE EXHIBITOR.

    THE DAMASCUS INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN THE MIDDLE EAST BECAUSE IT GAVES MANUFACTURERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DISPLAY THEIR GOODS TO A POTENTIALLY VAST MARKET IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
