The Agricultural Press Association in Romania (APAR) has announced dates and details for its first ENAJ low-budget press trip.

Focusing on the south-east region of Romania, and the well-known Danube Delta, it will take place between 19-25 June 2017 inclusive, with the main activities occurring over five days between 20-24 June.

“It’s a busy programme, but we promise that after this experience, you’ll love Romania and its agriculture!” says Nicoleta Dragomir, APAR chairwoman.
