A webinar in the Hungarian Parliament next Monday will be held as part of a series of conferences on the future of the European Union, with high-ranking politicians attending, Justice Minister Judit Varga told MTI. The two-year series of conferences, dubbed Conference on the Future of Europe, will tackle necessary reforms in the bloc with the involvement of EU citizens, Varga said.
Monday’s webinar will be entitled “Dialogue on the future of Europe: How to build a more effective and genuinely strong Union?”
The novel coronavirus pandemic highlighted institutional problems of the EU, which was already facing serious challenges, Varga said. “Already before the pandemic, it was clear the EU had to be renewed. But the vision of a strong Europe cannot come true without strong nation states,” she said.
Along with Varga, the webinar will be attended by Dubravka Šuica, the Vice-President of the European Commission for Democracy and Demography, former EP President Antonio Tajani, and Fidesz MEP József Szájer.
