The 8th Session of the Meeting of the Parties (MOP8) to the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) will take place on 26-30 September 2022 in Budapest, Hungary.
There will be no coronavirus-related restrictions at the World Exhibition
Pursuant to the amendment, it will be possible to visit the programmes of the World Exhibition to be held between 25 September and 14 October and the related events without disease control restrictions and the presentation of an immunity certificate.
Thanks to the successful Hungarian vaccination programme and the effective measures taken to counter the pandemic, in recent weeks Hungary has hosted a number of major events, including the 20 August St. Stephen Days, the FEI Driving European Championship for Four in Hand and the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress, attended by hundreds of thousands of people.
Preparations for the twenty-day World Exhibition are going to plan, according to the original schedule; gates will open in 11 days’ time.
“As a forum created for nature conservation and hunting, the “One with Nature” Expo achieved internationally significant results, and accordingly the work we have begun is worth continuing from a professional perspective, but also from a social, foreign policy and national image perspective alike”, Mr. Kovács emphasised in Riga.
