Budapest, August 4 (MTI) – Hungary will be the guest of honour at this year’s AGRA international agricultural and food fair in Gornja Radgona, in Slovenia, the organisers said on Thursday.
The 54th AGRA fair will be held between August 20 and 25.
Hungary is Slovenia’s 5th or 6th largest trading partner with bilateral trade totalling around 1.7 billion euros and continually growing, the economic and trade attache at the Slovenian embassy in Budapest said citing Slovenian figures. Farm and food products account for 700 million euros of two-way trade, Rok Tomsic said.
Farm ministry state secretary for the environment and agricultural development Zsolt V. Németh said that ties with Slovenia are of the utmost importance to Hungary. He cited agreements about cooperation in forestry and land regulations as examples.
