Novak: ‘Wise decisions’ in Brussels to benefit local communities
The president referred to the new facility, built at a cost of 400 million forints (EUR 1bn), as an example of the benefits of Hungary’s European Union membership “when decision-makers do what they are supposed to do”.
On another subject, Novak noted that nearby Croatia was now a member of the Schengen zone and the River Drava “no longer separates Hungary and Croatia but creates a link”.
Concerning the war in Ukraine, the president said Hungary was making “every effort in the interest of a ceasefire and peace talks”.
After the inauguration ceremony, the president made a bicycle tour in the area and visited a local Roma community.
