GOVT PUTS DIALOGUE WITH HUNGARIAN DIASPORA ‘ON NEW FOOTING’

 

The government has put dialogue with representatives of Hungarians beyond the border and the diaspora on a new footing, and it is working to ensure that, as widely as possible, Hungarians feel like members of a unified Hungarian nation living in a unified Carpathian Basin, a government official has said. Speaking at the unveiling of a memorial to the Treaty of Trianon in Magyaralmás, in central Hungary, Péter Szilágyi noted that many Hungarians were forced to leave their homeland in hope of a better life elsewhere after Hungary lost much of its territory to its neighbours after the first world war. The Orbán government has supported Hungarian communities across the border in reconstructing kindergartens, schools and churches, Szilágyi noted. The government has also supported companies that invest to preserve and create value within communities across the borders, as well as Hungarian jobs and sustainable institutions.
