New EU funding to be made available to Hungary

A total of 300 million euros of EU funding will soon be made available to Hungary. Following a letter by Hungary’s prime minister addressed to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, the EC agreed that Hungary should receive an advance payment from one of the EU’s recovery funds, PM Orban’s press chief – Bertalan Havasi – told Hungary’s state news agency (MTI) from Brussels on Thursday.
“Left-wing lies pertaining to EU resources have clearly been rebuffed by the fact that PM Orbán’s initiative has mobilised the EU’s machinery in less than a week, and the EC has proposed an amendment of the REACT-EU decree,” Mr Orban’s press chief said, adding that this would grant Hungary unconditional access to 300 million euros in EU funding within a few of weeks.
