International Hunting & Fishing Fair, Budapest Hungexpo, 7 – 10 February
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.
