Serbian Booth at the Autumn Harvest Fair in Yokohama

This year Serbia participated for the first time at the annual "Autumn Harvest Fair" in the center of Yokohama as the only foreign exhibitor among 100 participants from Japan.

This was a great opportunity to promote delicious food products and wines from our country, as well as culture and tourism. Our presence was strongly supported by Prof. Kenzo Yoneda, President of the Board of Directors of Japan - Serbia Friendship Association, and his colleagues Mr. Toshio Tanabe, President of "Toagas Co." as well as by Mr. Riichiro Tsuruta.

Ambassador Mrkić, his family and other Embassy's colleagues with their families participated in the event and worked, alongside Serbian volunteers, at the stand to promote our country. Ambassador and First Counsellor Ms. Janković also greeted the visitors.

The dance and singing perfomances of Ms. Anđelka Petrović and Ms. Milica Miladinović from Serbian National Folk Ensemble "Kolo" attracted a great number of visitors to our booth, and was even broadcasted on the regional TV Kanagawa. Prefectural Governor Mr. Shigefumi Matsuzawa also came to Serbian stand.

The visitors had also an opportunity to see a demonstration of the invention by Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla, "Colombus Egg".
