Mozambique was awarded best foreign exhibitor at the 31st Malawi International Fair in the city of Blantyre, Malawi, Radio Mozambique reported this weekend.
The award was bestowed by the Confederation of the Malawi Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the gala dinner for exhibitors at Malawi’s biggest products and potential showcase.
Quelimane City Council, representing the five Mozambican colours at this international fair, showcased its marine, agro-industrial and artistic-cultural potentialities to the fairs more-than-1,000 visitors.
Meanwhile, political tension in Malawi apparently somewhat dampened the enthusiasm of its national business representativeness, with companies exhibiting down this year to 187 from last year’s 224.
Among marine resources, crab and stone fish proved of most interest to both domestic and foreign visitors.
In a break with tradition, President Peter Mutharika did not inaugurate the fair this year, and was represented by the executive director of the Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Chancellor Kaferapanjira.
The fair was originally scheduled for June, but was postponed when post-election tensions adversely affected the participation of international exhibitors.
