PM’s Office: 2020 Year of Hungarian Community Building Abroad
MTI-Hungary Today 2020.01.13.
The government has designated 2020 the year of Hungarian community building, with the aim of helping Hungarian communities abroad prosper in their homeland, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement on Sunday.
Policymaking will continue to be geared towards supporting Hungarian families living in neighbouring countries while strengthening the economies of Hungarian communities abroad, the statement said. Youth, in particular, will be the central focus of the various schemes, it added.
A series of thematic programmes are being launched in order to present the common achievements of the Hungarian nation over the past hundred years, focusing on Hungarian communities from across the Carpathian Basin and around the world.
A training scheme that started in Vajdaság (Vojvodina) last year, with a view to strengthening the economies of Hungarians communities abroad, will be extended to other Hungarian regions abroad.
