Liechtenstein is a guest of honour at the Olma trade fair for agriculture and nutrition in St.Gallen from 13th to 23rd October. The Liechtenstein economy is hosting a special exhibition.
The positive relationship between the two countries was the focus of the Olma opening ceremony, where Liechtenstein councillor Marlies Amann-Marxer and Swiss federal councillor Ueli Maurer both gave speeches. Traditionally, opening day guests are taken on a tour, stopping outside the stable and visiting the special exhibition, according to a statement.
Under the slogan hoi metanand, this special exhibition, which covers over 600 square metres in Hall 9.1.2, is at the heart of Liechtensteins contribution. It also includes a 72-metre long projection surface surrounded by stations, where visitors can get involved. The different facets of the Liechtenstein economy are among the topics being presented.
Ernst Risch, head of Liechtenstein Marketing and project manager of the OLMA showcase, commented: I am delighted that OLMA has finally opened its doors and that we may now present our work to its visitors.
Cows, horses, donkeys, sheep and goats from the principality are on display in Hall 7. Breeders are also hosting a breeding bar, where anyone interested can learn useful facts about agriculture in Liechtenstein. The animals from Liechtenstein will appear in shows in the arena on 15th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 22nd and 23rd October.
Saturday 15th October will be dedicated to the guests of honour, with 1,200 people from Liechtenstein taking part in a procession. All the information about Liechtensteins Olma presentation are available at www.olma.li.
