Background: The Rand Easter Show at Johannesburg - the biggest annual trade fair staged in South Africa - was opened to the public March 23rd. The coming separation of South Africa from the British Commonwealth does not seem to have affected trade interest... attendance figures for the two-day preview for businessmen were the second highest on record.
At the preview, it was reported that substantial orders were already being received. European countries: including Finland; and Israel are among the overseas exhibitors.
A lighter touch is provided by a beautiful display of flowers, and by the motor-cycle and tracker-dog demonstrated given by the South African people.
