Background: The I British Industrial Fair held in Barcelona is situated in the Palace on Montjich. The British and Spanish Ministers for Commerce and other personalities attend the opening of the Fair, whose main aim is to increase to 70 million pounds British exports to Spain which last year were already of about 60 million pounds.
