István Joó, Deputy State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, announced that Planet Budapest 2021 is being organized for next November. Hungary has already organized three extremely successful global water summits at the initiative of President János Áder, Joó said.
Such events have paid off many times for Hungary, as water companies received numerous orders from all over the world. Building on these successes, the government decided to organize the Planet Budapest 2021 – Sustainability Expo and World Meeting, which will offer solutions for sustainable development.
The trade fair will show what technologies Hungarian and Central European companies have to offer to achieve sustainable development. It will serve as a meeting point for global policymakers, heads of state and government, financial institutions, academia and business leaders, but there will also be events for the public as well as youth on sustainable lifestyles, Joó explained.
