Deputy PM inaugurates House of Hungarian Affairs in Central Romania

Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen inaugurated the House of Hungarian Affairs in Miercurea Ciuc (Csikszereda), in central Romania, on Saturday.

Addressing the ceremony, Semjen said the building, which was purchased and renovated by the School Foundation with the support of the Hungarian government, contained “everything that pertains to the Hungarian world”.

He called for the establishment of “similar little Hungarian worlds” in Hungarian-inhabited localities.

The institution will be home to the Pro Economica Foundation, the Association of Szekler Farmers’ Organisations and the Eurotrans Foundation handling Hungarian citizenship matters.

Hunor Kelemen, leader of the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (RMDSZ), highlighted the importance of partnership with the Hungarian government, saying that “every affair in Miercurea Ciuc is a Hungarian affair”.

Zoltan Levente Nagy, head of the School Foundation, said the purchase and the renovation of the building cost 293 million forints (EUR 770,000).
