With the assistance of the Department of Trade and Industry (dti), a business delegation comprising 27 representatives from South Africa arrived in Angola on Tuesday.
The dti has organised a National Pavilion at the exhibition, while it has also financially assisted the companies to participate.
FILDA is a multi-sectoral fair with exhibitors from different sectors including oil, banking, services, trade, communications, automobile, machines and equipment, agriculture and farming products.
The delegation includes representatives of small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs), emerging exporters, women-owned enterprises and large companies.
Participating companies will showcase their products with the aim of increasing exports of South African manufactured products to Angola, which stood at R9.6 billion in 2013.
