Novak: ‘Wise decisions’ in Brussels to benefit local communities
President Katalin Novak attended the inauguration of a tourist centre in Barcs, in south-western Hungary, on Friday, and said "if wise decisions are made in Brussels, they will make Europe and its local communities richer".
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.
