    Background: The 61st Paris Fair (Faire de Paris) opened in the exhibition area near the Ports de Versailles on Saturday. African and Asian countries figure prominently among the 38 nations participating in the Foreign Nations Exhibition, one of the highlights of the fair.

    The Chinese People's Republic is making a big impression this year, with a wide-ranging exhibition covering five thousand square metres, second only to the nine thousand occupied by East Germany, the biggest foreign exhibitor.

    Large and small, the participating nations find the Paris Fair a valuable market place for their products, and increasingly, for claiming a share of the booming tourist industry.
