ALGIERS- The Algerian Company of Fairs and Exports (Safex) announced, on Wednesday, the cancellation of the International Fair of Algiers (FIA), scheduled between June 16 and 21, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Following the unprecedented sanitary crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, measures to control and prevent its spread have been decreed worldwide.
These inevitable measures led, among other things, to the closing of borders, the prohibition of movement, the suspension of flights and other types of transport, the prohibition of assemblies and consequently the cancellation and postponement of several events nationally and internationally, “said Safex in a statement posted on its website.
“In this health context, Safex, very aware of the multidimensional situation, announces to its partners and exhibitors that the 53rd edition of the Algiers International Fair is postponed for 2021”, added the same source.
Thus, the next edition of the FIA will take place from June 14 to 19, 2021, specified the company in its press release.
