This is the second international hunting expo in Hungary, following that which took place fifty years ago, he noted.
Kovacs called hunting “inseparable” from nature, adding that Hungary had regulated its hunting sector in an exemplary way. Regulated hunting is indispensable for sustainable nature management, he added.
Occupying 75,000sqm, the hunting expo will be the largest ever event held on the Hungexpo fairground, the government commissioner said.
Kovacs emphasised that heightened attention was being paid to the pandemic when it came to accessing the event and ensuring hygiene as well as the onsite presence of health-care staff.
The exhibition includes close to 1,500 events and runs until Oct. 14.
