    Background: THE SOMALI PREMIER, MR. MOHAMED EGAL, ON A THREE-DAY STATE VISIT TO ZAMBIA, TOURED THE COUNTRY'S INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR YESTERDAY, ACCOMPANIED BY PRESIDENT KENNETH KAUNDA. OFFICIALLY OPENING THE FAIR, PREMIER EGAL DESCRIBED ZAMBIA AS "THE RECOGNISED FRONTIER OF LIFE, BEYOND DISCRIMINATION AND INEQUALITY FLOURISH."
    THE TRADE FAIR, ZAMBIA'S BIGGEST YET, HAS EXHIBITS FORM 14 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES.

    AT THE KENYA PAVILION, MR. EGAL AND HIS HOST WERE GREETED BY STANLEY OLE OLOITIPITIP, ASSISTANT TO THE KENYAN MINISTER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY. THEY ALSO VISITED THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN STAND, WHERE THE DIRECTOR, MR. CERVENY, INTRODUCED THEM TO THE CZECH MINISTER OF FOREIGN TRADE, MR. L. PESCHL. MR. PESCHL SHOWED THEM SOME OF THE ENGINEERING UNITS ON DISPLAY.

    OTHER POINTS OF CALL WERE THE WEST GERMAN, POLISH AND MALAWI EXHIBITIONS.

    OTHER COUNTRIES TAKING PART IN THE TRADE FAIR INCLUDE UGANDA, SWEDEN, TANZANIA, INDIA, ISRAEL, EAST GERMANY. ITALY AND ZAMBIA.

    DURING THE ADDRESS AT THE OPENING CEREMONY, MR. EGAL SAID THAT AFRICAN STATES COULD ONLY EVOLVE AN EFFECTIVE FOREIGN POLICY THROUGH UNITY AND UNITY COULD ONLY COME THROUGH REGIONAL CO-OPERATION. THE EFFORTS OF THE EAST AFRICAN COMMON MARKET WERE A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS.

    (SOMALIA AND ZAMBIA ARE BOTH APPLICANTS TO JOIN THE COMMON MARKET, FOUNDED SOME SIX MONTHS AGO BY KENYA, TANZANIA AND UGANDA).
