Also attending the opening will be EU Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan, Slovenian Agriculture Minister Aleksandra Pivec, as well the latter's colleagues from nine more EU member states along with counterparts from Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro and North Macedonia.
This year's slogan of AGRA will be The Fair of the New Generation and the main focus of the fair will be on the digitalisation in agriculture, local food, and youth in agriculture.
Austria's Styria will feature as a partner region, while presentations will also be organised of Hungary, Croatia, North Macedonia, Poland, Bulgaria and Vietnam.
AGRA will cover the latest in farming technology and machinery, while the fair is also suited to the finest palates. A taste of Slovenia's stint as the the European Region of Gastronomy 2021 will be provided at daily tastings of award-winning produce and products.
The fair is also providing ever more room to alternative food production and crops, with a number of workshops and lectures taking place at AGRA's gardens. Visitors will for instance be able to expand their permaculture knowledge, get a hold of quality seeds, while one presentation will also deal with the use of endocannabinoids in healthcare.
