    PRESIDENT Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil will be the guest of honour at the official opening of this year's 34th Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair (DITF) on July 7.

    The Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair starts today at Mwalimu Julius Nyerere Grounds along Kilwa Road in Dare es Salaam.

    Meanwhile, Capital-Plus International, a fast growing PR and marketing communications company has been appointed by the Tanzania Trade Development Authority (TanTrade) to manage public relations and publicity during this year's Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair.

    The Tanzania Trade Development Authority (TanTrade) formerly the Board of External Trade (BET) was transformed recently to oversee the growth and development of trade in the country.

    Speaking in Dar es Salam on Sunday, TanTrade Director General, Ramadhan Khalfan said that the fair needs maximum coverage to woo investors as well as promote the local businesses and products.

    ''This year's trade fair promises to be one of the best events ever organized in the recent years. Everything is in place to ensure the visitors enjoy their time during Saba Saba'', he said.

    He said CPI experience would be vital in communicating to the outside world about the trade fair which has attracted over 16 countries.

    ''We are counting on CPI vast experience in public relations and marketing communications to promote the TanTrade activities as well as the trade fair'', he added.

    On his part, CPI's Head of Public Relations and Media, Mr Raymond Kanyambo said that his company was happy to be associated with the trade fair and promised an aggressive media publicity during the event.

    ''We will deploy a strong team that will be based at the trade fair round-the-clock services during the eleven-day event'', he said.

    He added that his company would also offer media publicity service to other exhibitors so as to reach their diversified customers. The event will run from today and end on July 8.

    The entrance fees have been pegged at 2,500/- for adults and 1,000 for children during the weekdays. The organizers said that during the opening of the event on Friday, adults will pay 3,000/- while a fee for children has been pegged at 1,500/-.

    The soft opening of the trade fair will be held on Friday and would be graced by the Secretary General of the East Africa Community (EAC), Ambassador Juma Mwapachu.

    At the same time, overall preparations for the 34th Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair have been completed while exhibitors are busy making final touches in their kiosks especially on products to be displayed at the fair.

    Speaking in Dar es Salaam at the Mwalimu Nyerere Trade Fair grounds on Sunday, the Director General of TanTrade Mr Ramadhani Khalfan said, almost all participants have completed arrangements and are ready for the exhibition.

    ''With only four days left before the soft opening of the trade fair, exhibitors are ferrying various products to their respective kiosks with most of them working tirelessly to ensure meeting the opening day deadline,'' said the TanTrade director general, Mr Ramadhani, who until recently was the director of Board of External Tanzania (BET).

    ''Arrangements for the opening and other things related to the trade fair are done and TanTrade has put measures to ensure its success including addressing challenges that might arise,'' the TanTrade boss said, adding that:

    ''The authority expects a lot of co-operation from 100 participants who attended a preparatory seminar and received a briefing on several regulations governing the 34th Dar es Salaam Trade fair exhibitions.

    ''Together with briefing participants, we also have focused on ensuring successful implementation of all activities under our authority and depend on the co-existing relationship with the respective exhibitors.

    ''Also, we expect the Brazilian President to be the Guest of Honour at the official opening of the exhibition which will host about 15 countries and 60 local companies are scheduled to showcase their products in the 11-day trade fair.''

    This year's trade fair exhibition is themed to centre on the 'Agriculture first' initiative popularly known as Kilimo Kwanza, as part of joining the government efforts in strengthening the agriculture sector. Daily News | Brazilian President to grace Dar es Salaam Trade Fair
