WIB's Visit at the Green Week

On 21 January 2014, the 16 Federal States group visited the International Green Week which is the world´s largest fair for the food, agricultural and horticultural industries. The IGW features a vast selection of fresh produce, seafood, meat and sausages, beer and wine, breeding stock, greenhouses and gardening supplies. The Bavarian State Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Forestry has invited us to a traditional Bavarian Breakfast accompanied by Bavarian folk music. The morning program included a tour of the various Bavarian stalls showcasing their numerous regional products.

In the afternoon, we visited Estonia, the partner country of the Green Week 2014. We learned about the fine Baltic country with its beautiful natural landscape and tasted some of its regional products. We continued the tour to Marocco with its traditional stand. With the kind courtesy of H.E. Ambassador Dr. Omar Zniber and his lovely wife, Bouchra, we enjoyed a typical buffet and the famous Moroccan mint tea.

The rest of the day was spent to buy some regional and international products for our loved ones at home.
