Luanda, Angola — 08 October 2012 – The opening of the fourth edition of the Angola International Mining Fair (FIMA) has been set for a new date – 11 October – after being postponed due to the instatement of new members of the country’s parliament elected on 31 August.

Macauhub cites the Angolan news agency Angop as reporting that the 4th FIMA will now be held from 11 to 14 October at the facilities of the International Luanda Fair (Filda). It will involve 120 companies from Angola and countries such as Argentina, Portugal, the United Arab Emirates, the Netherlands, Germany, and Namibia.

The fair had initially been scheduled for between 27 and 30 September.

The event is organised by the Ministry of Geology and Mining in partnership with Feira Internacional de Luanda (FIL), and is intended to promote investments related to the re-launch of diamond production and the mining sector in Angola.

The exhibition area will cover 6,000sq m and the event will involve companies from the exploration, concession management, aggregates, components, auxiliary equipment, and replacement parts sectors.
