The 56th edition of this year’s Maputo International Fair (FACIM), to be held from 30 August to 5 September this year, will be held, for the first time, in a face-to-face and virtual model, as a way of preventing the spread of covid-19, as a result of the potential agglomeration of exhibitors and visitors.

The decision was taken by the Government and announced by the Minister of Industry and Trade, Carlos Mesquita, who said that this year edition could be innovative in the sense that the exhibitors and visitors could interact face-to-face and virtually being inside or outside the FACIM enclosure located in Ricatla, in Marracuene district, Maputo province.

The digital platform that will be made available to the public will allow any exhibitor to commercialize its product in a virtual way, being that, for the effect, the exhibitor only needs to acquire space and tickets in the electronic page to be assigned a stand in the pavilion (virtual) of its province.
