Background: The 65th International Trade Fair in Zagreb, Yugoslavia took place recently, with 6,310 companies from 60 countries taking part.
SYNOPSIS: The Fair -- accepted as one of the most important of its kind in the world -- was bigger this year than at any time during its history. It also attracted about 100,000 visitors from many countries and at times it was so packed that people had difficulty moving from one exhibit to another. The organisers also reckoned that there were about 300,000 different products on display.
A record was also broken this year for the number of developing countries taking part -- 34 of them -- with Egypt playing a prominent role with a comprehensive display of traditional arts and crafts.
Modern engineering and technology was also well-represented - with models of some of the most up-to-date developments in the fields of transport and communications.
The pavilion that attracted the most attention was undoubtedly that of the People's Republic of China -- present at the fair again after many years' absence. The Chinese pavilion was originally designed in 1956, but it has lost nothing with the passing of the years and was widely acclaimed by visitors for its elegance and the artistic layout and presentation of the exhibits. Visitors also reported that the death of Chairman Mao Tse-tung was hardly noticed and that the feeling around the pavilion was as if he were still alive. A wide variety of Chinese goods were on display, including radios, bicycles, lanterns, silks and tapestries.
