ZAMBIAN President Michael Sata is expected in Zimbabwe this week for a State visit during which he will officially open the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, which begins in Bulawayo today. Presidential spokesperson Mr George Charamba confirmed

President Sata's visit.

"There are two things happening here.

"He (President Sata) is coming for a State visit and a State banquet will be hosted for him here in Harare after which he will fly to Bulawayo for the official opening of the ZITF," said Mr Charamba .

Mr Charamba said Zambia was one of the countries that had consistently displayed at the ZITF even after the imposition of the illegal sanctions by some Western countries.

Last year's edition of the ZITF was opened by President Mugabe.



The ZITF starts today in Bulawayo and its official opening is set for Friday.

Foreign exhibitors from China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Namibia, South Africa Kenya, Botswana Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi are expected at the fair.

Europe will be represented by Poland, Germany and Italy.

This year's edition will be held under the theme "Investing Locally, Reaping Globally."

Brazil and Indonesia are participating for the first time.

This year's fair takes place concurrently with the specialised fairs such as A'Sambeni, Pakprint, Scholastica and Ultim8 Home.
