DR stand in Berlin Green Week Fair is a hit
Thousands of visitors are being attracted by rum tasting at the Dominican stand at the Berlin Green Week currently taking place in Berlin. The Dominican Embassy in Germany organized the Dominican participation in the fair. Dominican alcoholic beverages are on sale ranging from rum, beer to the Mabi de Jagua, which was sold out. Minister Counselor John Castro de la Cruz was the organizer of the stand with the support of commercial attache Andres Lora Bastides. According to a report in Listin Diario, the Dominican attendance at this fair is in line with the policy set out by President Medina in his speech at the inauguration of the Forum on Dominican Diplomacy on Wednesday, 14 January 2015.
This is the first time that the Dominican flag has been flown in front of the main pavilion together with those of another 69 countries that are taking part in the 80th celebration of this fair. The Green Week Fair is open to the general public, where the stands can present and sell their products directly to consumers over 10 days from 16-25 January 2015. More than half a million people are expected to attend.
The world’s biggest fair for food, agriculture and horticulture is held in Berlin every January. In a total of 26 exhibition halls, about 1,500 national and international exhibitors present typical regional products and services related to food, agriculture and gardening. The fair invites its visitors to discover the world’s foods and other treats.
The International Green Week Berlin is unique as it presents trends in food, agriculture and gardening from a global perspective. Various products are presented in addition to the range of products displayed by the exhibitors, including holidays and shopping in the countryside and the promotion of renewable energy. The hands-on farm that provides behind the scenes glimpses of modern agriculture is especially popular with families.
