  • Description

    THE BIGGEST TRADE FAIR IN THE EASTERN BLOC WAS OFFICIALLY OPENED IN LEIPZIG YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) PROVIDING AN INDUSTRIAL SHOWCASE FOR BOTH EAST AND WEST. AN ANNUAL EVENT, THE EMPHASIS IN ON INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS AND MACHINE TOOLS.

    EAST GERMAN OFFICIALS ARE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT ACHIEVING A SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN SALES DURING THE FAIR TO WIPE OUT LAST YEAR'S DROP OF 300 MILLION MARKS UNDER THE 1962 FIGURE. THE OPTIMISM STEMS FROM EAST GERMAN HOPES AT INCREASED TRADE WITH THE WEST AND A STREAM OF WESTERN BUSINESSMEN ARRIVING IN THE REPUBLIC.

    THE EAST GERMAN GOVERNMENT EXPRESSED DISAPPOINTMENT, HOWEVER, AT THE DECISION OF THE FEDERATION OF BRITISH INDUSTRIES WHICH WILL NOT BE PRESENT THIS YEAR. AFTER FOUR YEARS PARTICIPATION IN THE LEIPZIG FAIR, THE F.B.I. DECIDED TO WITHDRAW FROM THE FAIR THIS TIME. THE FEDERATION SAYS THAT IT'S CONCENTRATION EFFORTS ON THE BARCELONA AND SYDNEY TRADE FAIRS, WHICH IT ADDS ARE MORE IMPORTANT.
