Similarly, a video was presented in which the former president of Hungary, János Áder, explained that although this country is rich in water and they know the benefits of this resource, in recent years they have faced a series of problems such as scarcity or contamination. , which is why they have implemented technological innovations that they are willing to share with the world to address these same issues that occur in other latitudes, in order to improve people’s quality of life.

International Pavilion “Margarita Michelena”

Later, the authorities toured the Poliforum facilities to immediately inaugurate the “Margarita Michelena” International Pavilion, where the “Hungarian Culture Week in Mexico” also began, which will last until December.

There, the Hungarian ambassador, Zóltan Németh, offered an explanation of the exhibitions that can be visited during these ten days of FUL activities.

Hungarian porcelain and embroidery are also shown, which are very characteristic of that nation, as they are embodied between fabrics and ruffles. Likewise, there is a handicrafts stand and another on educational information from the country that is the guest of honor at this Fair.
