Navracsics: Trade tool for peace, mutual understanding

Trade is a tool to bring about peace and mutual understanding between communities, the regional development minister told a business forum organised by the Zala County and the Prekmurje chambers of commerce in Lenti, in southwest Hungary, on Thursday.

Joint economic regions, independent from “borders which merely outline administrative units”, make trade easier, cheaper and safer, thereby boosting growth and prosperity, Tibor Navracsics said.

Aleksander Jevsek, the Slovenian minister for development and EU cohesion, said the joint projects offer new business opportunities in the region. The next financial cycle prioritises digitalisation, innovation, green transition and shaping a smart society, and will offer opportunities to companies as well as local authorities and non-profits, the traditional beneficiaries of cross-border schemes, he said.
