Berlin, 20 January 2017 – Again this year Slovenia will feature its own exhibition area in Hall no. 18 at the Berlin fair, which boasts an 82-year history. In addition to a presentation of Slovenian cuisine, it will house an attractive interactive pavilion entitled "Bee World".

The Slovenian Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Food, Dejan Židan, is welcoming ministers, delegations and eminent guests at Slovenia's stand. Among other dignitaries, Minister Židan has already greeted EU Agricultural Commissioner Hogan, the Dutch and Czech ministers of agriculture, the mayor of Berlin and numerous other eminent guests.

 

Bilateral meetings with representatives of Austria, Hungary, Bhutan, Portugal, Belarus and Bavaria are scheduled later today.

The partner country of this year's Green Week, held from 20 to 29 January, is Hungary. On the fringes of his visit to Berlin, Minister Židan will also meet with Slovenians living there.
