Angola: Filda trade fair cancelled

Issue 332 - 18 Oct 2016 | 2 minute read

A deepening economic crisis has forced the cancellation of this year’s Luanda International Fair (Filda), which had already been postponed from July to November. It will be the first cancellation in 33 years for the event, which was held throughout Angola’s civil war, which ended in 2002. The business weekly Expansão reported that the 33rd annual fair had been cancelled due to the “financial difficulties of the country”, which has been hard hit by a sharp fall in oil revenues.
