“My colleague Caner will certainly come to the inauguration of Agrimont, and if I can I will gladly come too, because being close to the world of agriculture at a particular moment like this is beyond important.” With these words, the Councilor of the Veneto Region, Cristiano Corazzari, concluded the press point on the occasion of his visit to the Belluno ichthyological centers. Together, at the Ethnographic Museum of the Province of Belluno and the Belluno Dolomites National Park, the presentation of the 41st edition of Agrimont, the mountain agriculture and animal husbandry fair, was held, which will continue on Sunday 20 and then resume on Friday 25. to Sunday 27 March. The intervention of the Regional Councilor for Agriculture, Federico Caner, was therefore confirmed at the inaugural ceremony (12.00).
After two years of hiatus due to the pandemic, the President of Longarone Fiere Dolomiti, Gian Angelo Bellati, is back in attendance and does not hide the enthusiasm, because the restart is proving extraordinary with all the exhibition spaces occupied. “Present we will have 198 corporate brands, 157 from 13 Italian regions and 41 from 11 foreign countries. A fair with an increasingly national and international character. The dominant theme is the link between agriculture and the environment. There is no longer only the CAP – Common Agricultural Policy – today there is also the Green Deal and biodiversity. Two other great European programs that bring important funding. But also important goals and therefore important opportunities for the world of agriculture “.
Great satisfaction also for the President of the Province of Belluno, Roberto Padrin. “Agrimont is not only the flagship for Longarone Fiere but for the whole province”. And in thanking all the exhibiting companies who believe in this important event, he also wanted to underline the validity of the program. Collateral events at the exhibition with important insights and topical issues. The numerous realities involved that will be protagonists at Agrimont are worthy of this.
