Strengthening Europe’s north-south infrastructural axis is a strategic interest of Hungary and Romania, the deputy prime minister in charge of Hungarian communities abroad, church policy and national and ethnic minorities said in Békéscsaba, in southeast Hungary. Addressing a ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the Hungarian-Romanian chapter of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MKIK), Zsolt Semjén also underlined the importance of extending motorways to the two countries’ borders, creating railway links and supporting Hungarian-Romanian joint ventures to enter foreign markets. The deputy PM said it was crucial to build motorways connecting Békéscsaba, Arad and Timișoara (Temesvár) as well as Debrecen and Oradea (Nagyvárad). Motorists in the European Union can drive from Záhony to Gibraltar, Semjén said, adding that creating a north-south axis linking the Baltic and Black Seas would be just as important.
