Andrej Plenković

24This year’s 22nd Viroexpo – the international economic, crafts and agriculture fair in Virovitica, with 624 exhibitors, was visited by a total of 28,000 people, from February 24th to 26th.

“Slavonija project is crucial, not only for this Croatian Government, but also for the entire Croatian future. We can say this region is ‘our granary’. Its people are generous, hardworking, strong-willed and ready to use the potential given by the Government from European funds”, said Plenković while opening the fair.

Minister of agriculture Tomislav Tolušić sees this fair as one of the most developed fairs in our country and beyond. The exhibitors, who come back every year, are a confirmation of that fact, as well as the visitors who always exceed the number of this town’s population. “Viroexpo can serve as a kind of a role-model for many other, bigger fairs”, said Tolušić.

This year’s partner country of the fair was Czech Republic.
