Fifteen countries have confirmed that they will participate in the 60th Damascus International Fair, and the number is expected to rise to 50. They have all expressed a desire to participate in an official or commercial capacity or through agents, according to Director of the General Establishment for Exhibitions and International Markets Fares Kartli.
Speaking to SANA, Kartli pointed out that about 236 foreign companies represented by Syrian agents will participate in the Damascus International Fair, beside local companies.
He expects that the fair will cover eighty thousand square metres, which is an increase from last year’s fair that was seventy-four thousand square metres last year.
Kartli indicated that the 60th edition of the fair will be larger than last year due to many factors including the remarkable success of the 59th edition and the large turnout by the fair’s visitors, as well as the increased security and stability in the capital Damascus and its surroundings, which were cleared from terrorism after recent victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army.
The 60th Damascus International Fair is due to be held Sep. 6 – 15, 2018.
