Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén opened the 26th Fishing, Hunting and Arms International Exhibition (FeHoVa) at the Hungexpo fairgrounds in Budapest. He said efforts were needed in order to resume Hungary’s hunting “superpower” status. The arms law needs to be rationalised, the role of the hunters’ chamber strengthened and a game management fund of several billion forints needs to be set up, he added.
This year’s fair, which boasts 300 exhibitors from 17 countries, is expected to draw more than 50,000 visitors. The exhibition will last from February 7 to February 10.
