Defence Minister: ‘2024 budget guarantees security of Hungarians’

Hungary's 2024 central budget allocations will ensure the continuation of the armed forces' reform and "appreciation for soldiers", the defence minister said in a statement on Tuesday.

Hungary will continue to work towards fulfilling its objective to build a top-notch, technically advanced military force, Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky said in a statement. It will remain for the Hungarian government a national strategic goal to build a capable, innovative and high-tech defence force that can effectively respond to challenges, he said.

Allocations in this year’s budget will ensure the participation of Hungarian troops in NATO missions and international military exercises and guarantee maintaining a 2 percent of GDP defence spending, he added.
