Businessman and former tennis figure Ion Tiriac has opened a hunting area near the Bihor County town of Balc with a hunting party in which many foreign businessmen and political personalities participated this weekend.

Thirty-two visitors from Western Europe, USA and Australia joined the Romanian guests.

Among them were Klaus Mangold, the president of the German Economic Commission for the East, Wolfgang Porsche, owner of the famous automobile producer, Julius Meinl, the owner of a well-known food chain, Bavarian Prince Max Emanuel von Thurn und Taxis, Burchard Bergmann, president of the German oil company Ruhrgas, Siegfried Wolf, head of the Magna Europa company, bankers Jose Merino Jimenez, Gonzalo Merino Nieto and Jose Luis Zanetti Duenas from Spain.

Former PM Adrian Nastase, now the president of the Chamber of Deputies and Ilie Sarbu, the former Minister of Agriculture also attended the hunting party.

Almost 200 people took part in organizing the event in which 185 wild boars were killed, some of which were valued as top specimens in their class.

Tiriac said he was happy with the first hunting session on his land. He added the guests were "knocked out" by the organization, scenery and the high quality of the hunted specimens.

Tiriac announced he will organize such events only once a year, for two days, so that the game evolves properly.

The11,500 hectare property was often used for hunting by Dictator Nicolae Ceausescu before 1989.

It was leased to Tiriac two years ago by the Bucharest association Zimbrul and the Wild Boar company.

The total investment of 1.2 million euros was entirely covered by Tiriac.

He paid for building the fences, the arrangements, populating the area with animals, and rebuilding and modernizing the lodge, its annexes and the access roads.

The area had 550 wild boars, 80 stags, some of which were brought from abroad, to increase the number of animals in the hunting area.

"In time, the investment will rise to 2 million euros, because it's better to make things right, if you want to have people of this caliber come over," said Tiriac.
