Background: Thirty-six countries and a number of international organisations are currently taking part in the eleventh International Fair in Tripoli, Libya. The trade fair, which opened on March 1, will continue until March 20.
All Eastern European countries cave Albania, are taking part as well as countries from Europe, Africa, Asia and South America.
Neither the United States nor Britain is taking part, but it is notable that Ched is presented at this year's fair. This marks an improvement in relation between Ched and Libya, who severed relations in 1971.
