Background: President Nasser of the United Arab Republic opened an International Agricultural Exhibition in Cairo Mar 25. Twenty-two countries are exhibiting at the Fair - the first of its kind in the U.A.R. Its theme is agriculture and land reclamation, and it is open for one month.
After the opening ceremony, the President toured the site visiting many of the national pavilions. At the U.A.R. pavilion he spent some time discussing a model of the Aswan High Dam.
A feature of the show is that for the first time the United States and Chinese People's Republic are represented at the same exhibition.
