FILDA, which will take place from 21-26 July 2015, is a popular multi-sectoral trade fair attended by exhibitors from different sectors including oil, banking, services, trade, communications, automobile, machines and equipment, and agricultural and farming products.
Last year, more than 800 companies from about 40 countries participated in the exhibition, with more than 50 000 people visiting it.
The dti will provide financial assistance to companies through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance (EMIA) scheme to participate and showcase their products at the exhibition. The aim is to increase exports of South African manufactured products to Angola.
The objective of the scheme is to develop export markets for South African products and services and to recruit new foreign direct investment into the country.
