Robert Velkey 2016.09.08.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has received the Krynica Economic Forum’s annual “Man of the Year” at the 26th annual Economic Forum in Krynica, Poland. “With great respect I accept the prize,” said Orbán while receiving the award from Prime Minister Beata Szydło.


The “Man of the Year” prize is awarded to outstanding people who have had the greatest influence on the course of events in Central and Eastern Europe. The Hungarian prime minister suggested that the Visegard Group, consisting of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, could be prominent in driving reform in the European Union following Brexit. “I am of the opinion that the Visegard Group is a very good forum in which to germinate ideas and to then take them to a European level,” Orbán said.

 The Hungarian Prime Minister had a speech about the situation of the EU and the migration. Click here to read about the thoughts of the Man of the year.
