Background: Soviet Trade Representative in Singapore, Mr. V.G. Mandrykin, cut an official ribbon in Singapore on Friday (29 October), to open the 1971 Commercial Exhibition of Soviet Trade Organisations, at the Great World Amusement Park. Soviet Ambassador to Singapore, Mr. B.V. Bezrukavnikov, said on Friday that only a few years had gone by since the establishment of trade and then diplomatic relations between the Soviet Union and Singapore, but that even within that period considerable progress had been made in the development of commercial and other contacts. He was hopeful the exhibition would further the good relations existing between the two countries and assist in the widening of mutually beneficial trade.
The exhibition, which has attracted more than 50 Soviet foreign trade organisations, includes a wide range of general-purpose and industrial machinery and consumer products. Many of the stands feature specialist demonstrators from the exhibition companies.

A new machine for manufacturing nails attracted much attention.
