    SYNOPSIS: President Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, accompanied by his wife, arrived at the exhibition site in Kinshasa last Saturday.

    The President was there to open the Third International Fair.

    This year's fair has agriculture as one of its main themes. Agriculture is of crucial importance to the economy of Zaire.

    The fair covers 87,00 square yards -- about 4,000 square yards more than the 1971 fair. Represented for the first time are The People's Republic of China, Argentina, Brazil, Gaben, Somalia and Guinea. Among events taking place in conjunction with the fair is a seminar on trade and finance for development. The fair will, it is hoped, boost the level of foreign trade for Zaire as well as providing other countries with the opportunity of exhibiting their produce in Zaire.
