Business End

BABYLON, March 21 (Rooters) � As sales representatives converge on Babylon 2003, the biggest trade show of the year, the Dow has skyrocketed 8.4 percent, its greatest weekly gain since the Falklands show of 1982.

Product demonstrations by Boeing, Raytheon, General Electric, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin are attracting buyers worldwide.

Product placement is touted as the central theme of this year's show. Boeing, long a crusader for cross-border marketing, has seen orders for almost 19,000 JDAM conversion kits since September, and this week's show promises to bring in many more orders.

Iraqi markets were closed Friday.
