  • Description

    A WATER ORGAN AND AN ELECTRONIC BRAIN ARE AMONG EXHIBITS WHICH WILL BE ON SHOW AT GHANA'S FIRST INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR WHICH IS TO BE HELD IN ACCRA FROM FEBRUARY 1 - 19.

    AN OFFICIAL OF THE TRADE FAIR SECRETARIAT ANNOUNCED RECENTLY THAT THE WATER-SPOUTING ORGAN WOULD BE DISPLAYED BY WEST GERMANY, WHILE THE UNITED STATES WOULD DISPLAY AN ELECTRONIC BRAIN CAPABLE OF SOLVING INTRICATE PROBLEMS.

    THE ELABORATE PROGRAMME FOR THE FAIR INCLUDES A STATE BALL, CONCERTS AND CULTURAL DISPLAYS.

    A TOTAL OF 31 COUNTRIES WILL BE EXHIBITING GOODS AT THE FAIR, WHICH PROMISES TO RANK WITH SIMILAR DISPLAYS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD.

    THE THEME OF THE COUNTRY'S FIRST VENTURE IN THIS FIELD IS "DEVELOPING AFRICA" - AND IT IS HOPED THAT IT WILL PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR AFRICAN MANUFACTURERS TO EXPAND THEIR MARKETS.

    ONE OF THE MAIN OBJECTS OF THE FAIR WILL BE TO SHOW HOW INDUSTRIALLY ADVANCED COUNTRIES WHAT THE DEVELOPING COUNTIES - PARTICULARLY GHANA - HAVE ACHIEVED IN THE FIELDS OF INDUSTRY AND TRADE, AND THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT.

    EXHIBITS HAVE STARTED ARRIVING AT THE FAIR SITE - ABOUT THREE MILES (4.8 KILOMETERS) FROM THE CENTRE OF ACCRA. THE STANDS AND PAVILIONS OF MANY NATIONS ARE UNDER CONSTRUCTION - ONE OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE BEING THE AFRICA PAVILION, A CIRCULAR BUILDING WHICH WILL HOUSE THE EXHIBITS FROM PARTICIPATING AFRICAN STATES.

    THE FAIR IS EXPECTED TO ATTRACT MORE THAN 300 COMMERCIAL CONCERNS AS EXHIBITORS, AND MORE THAN 20,000 VISITORS.
