  • Description

    "GREEK WEEK" - EUROPE'S LARGEST WINTER AGRICULTURAL EXHIBITION - WAS OPENED IN WEST BERLIN YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) BY WEST GERMAN PRESIDENT HEINRICH LUEBKE.

    THERE ARE NEARLY 500 FOREIGN EXHIBITORS THIS YEAR, SURPASSING FOR THE FIRST TIME THE NUMBER OF WEST GERMAN AND WEST BERLIN EXHIBITORS, AND THE FAIR IS EXPECTED TO ATTRACT HALF A MILLION VISITORS, MANY OF THEM FROM OVERSEAS. AT YESTERDAY'S OPENING, AGRICULTURAL MINISTERS FROM NINE COUNTRIES ATTENDED.

    WELCOMING THE GUESTS TO THE EXHIBITION, HERR WILLY BRANDT, GOVERNING MAYOR OF WEST BERLIN, SAID HE WAS GLAD THAT "GREEN WEEK" HAD DEVELOPED INTO A FORUM OF UNOFFICIAL BUT IMPORTANT TALKS ON EUROPEAN AND INTERNATIONAL AGRICULTURAL POLICY.

    THE PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET COMMISSION, PROFESSOR WALTER HALLSTEIN, SAID THE RECENT DECISION TO LOWER WEST GERMAN GRAIN PRICES HAD PAVED THE WAY TOWARD A COMMON EUROPEAN AGRICULTURE.

    THE COMMUNITY OF THE SIX, NOW THE WORLD'S BIGGEST IMPORTER OF AGRICULTURAL GOODS, COULD FACE OPTIMISTICALLY THE OTHER WORLD MARKETS, HE SAID.

    THE EXHIBITION HAS MANY UNUSUAL STANDS. ONE NOVELTY ATTRACTION IS FOR WEST BERLIN'S NEWEST HUSBANDS AND FATHERS. ANYONE BECOMING A HUSBAND OR A FATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME DURING "GREEN WEEK" CAN RING UP THE DANISH EXHIBIT ORGANISERS AND THEY WILL RECEIVE A LARGE HAMPER OF FOOD TO TIDE THEM OVER UNTIL THEIR WIVES AND BABIES RETURN HOME, AND A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS FOR THE MOTHERS IN CASE THEIR HUSBANDS HAVE FORGOTTEN TO BUY ANY.

    18 FOREIGN COUNTRIES ARE EXHIBITING AT THE SHOW. INDIA, YUGOSLAVIA, AND NEW ZEALAND ARE TAKING PART FOR THE FIRST TIME. OTHER EXHIBITORS ARE: ALGERIA, AUSTRIA, BELGIUM, DENMARK, FRANCE, HOLLAND, ISRAEL, ITALY, LUXEMBURG, MOROCCO, NORWAY, SPAIN, SWITZERLAND, TUNISIA, AND THE UNITED STATES.
