  • Description

    BANGKOK, THE BUSY, BUSTLING CAPITAL OF THAILAND, HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS THE VENUE FOR THE ASIAN TRADE FAIR WHICH IS TO BE HELD NEXT NOVEMBER. THE FAIR IS SPONSORED BY ECAFE -- THE UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC COMMISSION FOR ASIA AND THE FAR EAST AND FORTY COUNTRIES WILL BE REPRESENTED.

    TRADE AUTHORITIES SAY BANGKOK IS A GOOD CHOICE FOR THE FAIR, BECAUSE THAILAND IS ASIA'S FASTEST GROWING MARKET. THIS IS DUE PARTLY TO BIG AMERICAN DEFENCE AND CIVIL AID SPENDING, BUT ALSO BECAUSE OF THAILAND'S OWN ECONOMIC PROGRESS.

    BANGKOK'S CURRENT BOOM IS SHOWN IN RE-MODELLED BOULEVARDS, ROWS OF NEW BUILDINGS AND A GENERAL AIR OF PROSPERITY. THE OLD BANGKOK REMAINS, ALTHOUGH IN MANY AREAS, THE KLONGS -- OR CANALS -- AND THE WATERBORNE MARKETS AND BOAT TRAFFIC ARE FIGHTING A LOSING BATTLE AGAINST MODERN DEVELOPMENT.

    AUSTRALIA, JAPAN, FRANCE, NORWAY AND THE UNITED STATES ARE AMONG THE COUNTRIES WHICH WILL HAVE PAVILIONS AT THE FAIR.
