MORE than 2,000 domestic and international exhibitors are expected to take part in the 39th Dar es Salaam International Trade Fair (DIFT) this year.
The Director General of the Tanzania Trade Development Authority (TANTRADE), Ms Jacqueline Maleko, told a news conference in Dar es Salaam yesterday that the preparations of the 39th DITF are on the final stages for the exhibitions to take off at end of this month.
"Generally, we are on the right track with the trade fair preparations that will attract local exhibitors including ministries, public and private enterprises as well as international firms," she said.
A total of 1,700 domestic firms and over 500 foreign firms will take part in the show. She said the trade fair was an occasion for Tanzanians to explore immense business and technological opportunities to seal business deals with the international companies. The theme of the 39th trade fair is "Linking production to markets."
As an annual event, it provides a rare opportunity for investors to explore and identify various investment ventures in Tanzania.
Furthermore, the trade fair is an important ground for local manufacturers to observe and learn on how to produce goods of international standards that could easily penetrate and compete in the global markets.
Ms Maleko also urged local manufacturers to find the necessary market information before producing goods that would help them become competitive in the global markets.
She called upon local exhibitors to abide to rules and regulations by tax and food and drugs regulatory authorities.
