A total of 880 dealers representing 250 different firms from 25 countries are taking part in the 14th annual mechanical-engineering fair that began in Nitra on May 22.

Milan Cagala, president of the Mechanical Engineering Union, said that the fair offered a unique opportunity to tackle the ever-growing competition.

The organizers at the Agrokomplex exhibition grounds said that this year there has been a greater interest in metallurgy, plastics in mechanical engineering, machine tools, welding and welding technology.

According to Agrokomplex manager Jozef Janiš, interest in commodities in electrical engineering, automation and regulation has fallen.
