POTÁPI: PERMANENT HUNGARIAN CONFERENCE, DIASPORA COUNCIL TO MEET ONLINE

 

The next meetings of the Permanent Hungarian Conference (Máért) and the Diaspora Council will be held online due to the coronavirus pandemic on November 26, State Secretary Árpád János Potápi has said. Potápi said that the two waves of the epidemic “confined Hungary and the diaspora within four walls” and programmes needed to be reorganised online. He added, however, that modern technology facilitated reaching out to another 10,000 ethnic Hungarians, with whom, he said, ties would be maintained in future. So far, 45,000 ethnic Hungarians have been involved in the government’s programmes, Potápi noted.
