May Agricultural Fair – Better Country

The Novi Sad Fair opens its doors from May 21 to 27, which was announced at a press conference at the Media Center in Belgrade.

– For us, as organizers, the most important thing is that we came out of that crown regime. We fought like lions in that difficult period to stay active, to maintain communication with our exhibitors, to maintain our position in the market and to be “a place where you gain an advantage and we succeeded.” This year we have 1,100 exhibitors. Compared to 2019, we are at 75 percent of the Fair. Our partner country is Hungary and in light of the good bilateral relations between our two countries, I thank the ambassador for the activities he is undertaking. We have kept the international character, as evidenced by the performances of companies from 18 other countries. Along with numerous collective exhibitions, we can also announce the premiere performance of Morocco. There are other segments that we had in previous years and I want to thank the Ministry of Agriculture, which is our patron in the field of animal husbandry and fruit growing, and the livestock part will be very well represented this year. Thursday, May 26 is the Day of Livestock Breeders, and that day will be dedicated to the Champions’ Evening and quality assessment – said Slobodan Cvetković, General Manager of the Novi Sad Fair.

Velimir Stanojevic, State Secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, pointed out that they are participating in the realization of the Fair with great enthusiasm. The Ministry has been the patron of the largest National Exhibition of Livestock for years, and the Exhibition of Genetic Potentials since three years ago.
– This year, the best cattle will be present, primarily fattening breeds, horses, sheep, goats. Unfortunately, there will be no pigs this year either, due to the potential danger of the African plague. On Thursday, May 26, on the Day of Cattle Breeders, the best heads from this area will parade, when the director of the Fair and I will share the awards. What is especially important in the light of biodiversity conservation is the presence of autochthonous breeds of cattle, horses and sheep – said Velimir Stanojevic. Traditionally, in Hall 1A, under the auspices and organization of the Ministry of Agriculture, an exhibition of organic products, products with a geographical indication, products with the label “Serbian quality” will be held, and craft beer producers will be present.


– What is important is that as a country we promote value-added products and when it comes to animal husbandry to promote all those measures and subsidies that we give in this area from our own and IPA funds to revitalize livestock. I also want to announce the presence of beekeepers in Hall 23 Serbia has become a serious beekeeping country with over a million hives, over 30,000 farms in Serbia are engaged in beekeeping and several honeys from our country bear the mark of protected geographical origin. We will also organize workshops, seminars, professional lectures. The Ministry is also organizing an IPARD day and a gathering dedicated to the realization of these projects – Stanojevic added.

The general sponsor of the 89th International Agricultural Fair is Globos osiguranje, whose focus this year will be on crop and fruit insurance. Support for the Novi Sad Fair is also the Postal Savings Bank, as a partner bank of the Agricultural Fair, but also the company Al Dahra, which is the Golden Sponsor of the Agricultural Fair.
