  • Description

    PRESIDENT KENNETH KAUNDA OF ZAMBIA OPENED THE ANNUAL ZAMBIA TRADE FAIR IN NDOLA ON SATURDAY (1 JULY, 1967).

    FOURTEEN NATIONS ARE TAKING PART IN THE EXHIBITION. THEY ARE ZAMBIA, POLAND, KENYA, CZECHOSLOVAKIA, WEST GERMANY, BRITAIN, TANZANIA, JAPAN, SINGAPORE, ITALY, ISRAEL, SWEDEN, AND THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA. CONGO-KINSHASA WAS ALSO REPRESENTED.

    MR. KAUNDA ENTERED THE SHOWGROUNDS THROUGH THE PUBLIC ENTRANCE, NOT BY HIS USUAL OFFICIAL CAR. HIS FIRST STOP WAS AT THE KENYA PAVILION WHERE HE WAS GREETED BY MR. MWAI KIBAKI, KENYA'S MINISTER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY. INSIDE THE KENYA PAVILION HE SIGNED THE VISITORS BOOK. HE WAS ACCOMPANIED ON HIS VISIT BY MR. SIMON KAPWEPWE, ZAMBIA'S MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

    NEXT PRESIDENT KAUNDA VISITED THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN AND GERMAN STANDS. ONE OF THE MAJOR EXHIBITS FROM GERMANY WAS A MERCEDES CAR.

    THE THEME AT THE BRITISH STAND WAS "ELECTRICITY" AND THE STAND SET OUT TO SHOW THE END-PRODUCT USES OF ELECTRICITY. HE WAS GREETED AT THE STAND BY MR. BERNARD PAUNCEFOOT, BRITISH INFORMATION OFFICER IN ZAMBIA.

    AT THE SWEDISH STAND HE SAW A DISPLAY OF SWEDISH OUTBOARD MOTORS AND WAS PRESENTED WITH A LOUDSPEAKER TELEPHONE WHICH OPERATES WITHOUT A HANDSET.

    THE ISRAELI PAVILION WAS AGAIN IN USE THIS YEAR. LAST YEAR THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT DID NOT USE IT --- AND IT WAS LEASED TO THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC. IT FEATURED A DISPLAY OF BOOKS, ELECTRIC CABLES BATHROOM FITTINGS.

    AT THE TANZANIAN STAND HE SAW AN EXHIBITION OF LOCAL PRODUCTS, AMONG THEM A COMPLEX TELEVISION EXHIBIT.

    THE PRESIDENT ALSO VISITED THE POLISH AND JAPANESE EXHIBITIONS. AT THE JAPANESE STAND HE SAW A DATSUN SPORTS CAR AND A COLLECTION OF JAPANESE RAILWAY POSTERS.

    ON THE ZAMBIAN STAND HE SAW ONE OF THE 26 NEW LOCOMOTIVES RECENTLY ACQUIRED BY ZAMBIA AS A FOUNDATION FOR ZAMBIA RAILWAYS. THIS, IN A SENSE, WAS THE NEWEST EXHIBIT ON DISPLAY. THE SAME DAY AS THE EXHIBIT OPENED ZAMBIA BROKE AWAY FROM THE JOINTLY OWNED RHODESIA RAILWAYS AND FORMED ZAMBIA RAILWAYS. ONE OF THE REPAINTED CARRIAGES ON SHOW HAD THE WORDS "RHODESIA RAILWAYS" PAINTED OVER.
