From August 30 to September 2, KKL-JNF joined representatives of commercial companies from all over Europe at the International Wood Fair in Klagenfurt, Austria. The focus of the fair was on timber production and forest management. The fair was attended by 22,000 participants from 22 nations across Europe.
The KKL-JNF delegation included KKL-JNF Emissary to Switzerland Jariv Sultan, International Projects, Conference and Events Coordinator Karine Bolton Laor, and KKL-JNF Forester Shalom Derri.
The fair was the first of its kind that KKL-JNF participated in, at the initiation of Dr. Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen, a descendent of the Austrian Imperial family who is chairman of the Carinthian chapter of the Austrian-Israeli Friendship Association and long time supporter of KKL-JNF Austria. Dr. Hapsburg-Lothringen, along with the Israeli Ambassador to Austria, H.E. Aviv Shir-On, encouraged KKL-JNF to participate in the fair, in order to open up a new market for cooperation with Israel.
