Students and teachers from the Secondary Boarding School of Agriculture Priština - Lešak, accompanied by farmers from the Leposavić municipality visited the 90th International Agricultural Fair yesterday in order to see all the novelties in the field of agriculture. This field trip was organised upon the initiative of the school and it was supported by the Office for Kosovo and Metohija and the Novi Sad Fair.

- The Office pays special attention to agriculture and provides subsidies to farmers in Kosovo and Metohija to help them work and live off their work, said the deputy director of the Office Veselin Kočanović. – We are particularly careful to give advantage to those aged 18-40, but also to support women entrepreneurs, so that we could create the conditions for the young people to stay in Kosovo and Metohija.

The Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Serbia Tomaš Kuchta and Czech Republic agro-economic diplomat Vladimir Vana visited the 90th International Agricultural Fair and the collective exhibition of companies from the Czech Republic. The guests were informed about the event, the varied program and the exhibition by the General Manager of the Novi Sad Fair Slobodan Cvetković.

A comparative overview of the agro-digitalization process between Serbia and Hungary as well as of the trading cooperation between the two countries, facilitated by Hungarian know-how and transfer of technology in this field, was the topic of the “Agro-digitalization 2023” conference, organized by the Novi Sad and Subotica branch offices of CED – Central European Economic Development Network.
