The Ministry of Agriculture recieved the two-yearly meeting of the FAO European Commision on Agriculture for the third time on 1-2 October 2019, where 54 representatives of european and middle-asian countries participated. The main significance of the actual meeting of the European Commision on Agriculture was to make arrangements for the International Year of Plant Health in 2020.
 
As one of the programmes of the two-day meeting with professional lectures the Ministry of Agriculture and the FAO organised a field visit to show Hungarian results, good practices and scientific observations about plant health and entomology. The SZIU Faculty of Horticultural Science recieved the participants of the field trip, so the delegation could visit the Department of Entomology and the Department of Plant Pathology. A visit to the Buda Arboretum and a wine tasting completed the half-day programme.
