FINANCE MINISTER ATTENDS INAUGURATION OF NEW REFORMED CHURCH IN NYÍREGYHÁZA

 

Finance Minister Mihály Varga attended the inauguration of a new Reformed church in Nyíregyháza-Örökösföld, in north-eastern Hungary, over the weekend. In his address at the ceremony, the minister said that “our Christian culture is an asset which helps the nation survive, serves as a basis for our freedom and a resource for our renewal”. The government considers the churches as its “natural allies” that are “crucial for Hungary’s intellectual and spiritual renewal”, he added. The government has contributed a grant of 450 million forints (EUR 1.3m) to the construction, which cost a total of 700 million forints.
