SYNOPSIS: A Bulgarian trade exhibition opened in London on Monday to demonstrate the latest advances in science and technology to British businessmen.
The opening speech was made by Mr. Anthony Grant. He told officials that an exchange of business, technological and scientific contract was essential in the present age of advance. Officials are hoping that the exhibition will promote further trade between Bulgaria and Britain. There are over 60 exhibits on show to the public, and the organisers have made it known that license applications from British firms for patents will be welcomed.
The Bulgarians have already sold licences to Italy, Japan, Spain, the United States and Britain for marketing of some of the exhibits. Britain's licence was for the protective coating of electrodes--already being developed by the steel industry.
The exhibition includes developments in the electronic, mechanical engineering, metallurgy and pharmaceutical fields, as well as the farming and food industry. The demonstrations will be backed up with lectures and film shows, and is scheduled to last until Friday.
