Economy minister opens Turul Expo exhibition in Transcarpathia

The Hungarian government “has always given special consideration to ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia and the government bears their interests in mind”, Economy Minister Mihály Varga said at the opening of the fourth Turul Expo exhibition in Piterfolvo (Péterfalva), in western Ukraine. The minister gave special thanks to the organiser of the exhibition, the Association of Hungarian Entrepreneurs in Transcarpathia (KMVSZ), noting the outstanding role it plays in organising the economic activities of ethnic Hungarians there. He praised the organisation’s efforts to help ethnic Hungarians stay in their homeland by strengthening their economic foundations, adding that the Hungarian government is providing all the assistance it can to support this goal.

Last year, the Hungarian government provided non-reimbursable funding of 2 billion forints (EUR 6.54 million) to Hungarian businesses and entrepreneurs in Transcarpathia through the Egán Ede Transcarpathian Business Development Programme. Considering the success of the programme, this year the government has allocated funding of 7.2 billion forints and a 20 billion forint preferential credit line for Transcarpathian business development tenders, Varga said. Around 100 businesses and entrepreneurs from Transcarpathia, Hungary, as well as other regions of the Carpathian Basin with ethnic Hungarian communities are showing their products at the Expo.

    Turul?
    From the way Fidesz burns money with these projects it should be dögkeselyű aka vulture …

    The 3 nostalgic things that make Hungarians the most happy:
    – Turuls. Turuls everywhere.
    -The revival of Arrow Cross-dressing.
    -The rebirth of the Soviet Union of Hungary
    (thanks to our Glorious Fidesznik Government)

      The Fidesz activities again and again remind me of that saying by Karl Marx:

      History repeats itself – the first time as a tragedy, the second time around as a farce!

      But Hungarians are paying for very expensive tickets to see this farce …

    Well, I suppose making and selling homemade palinka makes one a kind of “entrepreneur.”

  • Considering the success of the programme, this year the government has allocated funding of 7.2 billion forints and a 20 billion forint preferential credit line for Transcarpathian business development tenders

    How was this success defined?
    Pro-Fidesz tenders that managed to spent the free money Fidesz gave them?

    All these businesses(-persons) are proud to display a Big Yellow Star as ‘foreign agents’?
