    Background: The first All-Africa Trade Fair opened its gates at Nairobi's Jamhuri Park on Wednesday, with displays by 34 African countries. The 12-day fair is organised by the 41-nation Organisation of African Unity to foster trade and contacts between African countries, and show the world the continent's potential for development.

    Finishing touches were being put to the pavilions and exhibition stands in preparation for the formal opening by President Kenyatta on Thursday. Among the leaders attending the opening ceremony were President Moktar Ould Daddah of Mauretania, current chairman of the OAU, Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia and President Idi Amin of Uganda.

    As well as national pavilions, there are stands for the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, the East African Community, and a pavilion for the liberation movements sponsored by the OAU.
