The International Economic Fair opened in Mostar Tuesday, gathering 750-800 exhibitors from the countries of the region and the world, and over 60,000 visitors are expected over the next five days.
The Fair was opened by Peter Szijjarto, Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as his country is this year's partner country of the Fair.
“Get off the high saddle because it is not the time for arrogant statements,” the Hungarian Foreign Minister told official Brussels, and thunderous applause erupted in the hall in Mostar when he pointed to the latest election results.
During his address at the opening ceremony of the Mostar Fair, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic pointed out that the liquefied gas terminal on Krk does not only have a national character.
“According to estimates on the Croatian side, the project costs EUR 75-76 million,” he said.
Ana Brnabić, the Prime Minister of Serbia, among other things, said that “roads are what unite us, and the Republic of Serbia is aware of that and is focused on infrastructure projects.”
Around 750-800 exhibitors from BiH, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Poland, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Albania, China, Turkey, Israel and Germany will present their potentials at the Fair, which has 30,000 square meters of exhibition space – 10,000 outdoor and 20,000 indoor.
