Hungary guest of honor at International Green Week in Berlin
“Hungary’s 33 exhibitors will be giving Berlin’s trade representatives and public a taste of our values, which we hope will be sampled by as many of the 400.000 visitors as possible, so that they may spread the word about Hungary’s high quality products," the Agriculture minister said
Hungary is once again the guest of honor at the International Green Week in Berlin, and organizers have even incorporated the Hungarian flag into promotional activity of the event this year.
At the opening ceremony, Sándor Fazekas, minister of Agriculture, said it is an honor for Hungary to have been invited to Europe’s largest and most prestigious agriculture and food industry expo.
“Hungary’s 33 exhibitors will be giving Berlin’s trade representatives and public a taste of our values, which we hope will be sampled by as many of the 400.000 visitors as possible, so that they may spread the word about Hungary’s high quality products," the minister said. “Hungary is basing its future on traditional agriculture and food production that is sustainable and free of genetic manipulation," Minister Fazekas added.
“It is through an agriculture that produces sustainable, healthy and quality foods that we see the future of our children as guaranteed. It is no accident that the Hungarian motto for this year’s Green Week is “Traditionally, Diversely, Naturally”. And indeed, it is from these values that Hungary’s agriculture gains its strength, competitiveness and economic performance”, the minister said.
“Hungary has been called the continent’s pantry many times throughout the course of history. Our soil and climate are highly suited for the production of high quality, safe and valuable agricultural products," Minister Fazekas pointed out.
“Maintaining the excellent reputation of Hungarian agriculture in a changing world requires deeply rooted historical foundations, the hard work and expert knowledge of Hungarian farmers and a responsible and forward-looking agricultural policy and way of thinking," he concluded.
