The 45th Tripoli International Fair is going to kick-start on Sunday and will last until April 12.

The chairman of the General Authority of Exhibitions in Libya, Salah Al-Deen Hamza, said most of the local private and public companies from various industries and service works will be present at the 45th fair, besides several foreign companies that operate from Libya.

"No international participation will be registered in this year's fair despite several correspondences that were made by the administration of the fair." Hamza said.

"They all said no citing the current lack of security in the country." He remarked.

He clarified that they had coordinated with the relevant security authorities to secure and protect the fair goers and visitors in the ten days period.

On weekdays the fair will open from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, except on Fridays, it will be opening in the evening only, Hamza explained.
