PM Orban: Central Europe represents traditional Western values
On 29 July, Hungary's prime minister received in his office the foreign guest speakers and instructors of the MCC Festival in Esztergom, organised by the Mathias Corvinus Collegium, his press chief, told Hungary's state news agency MTI.
During the meeting, the participants discussed the serious political and economic consequences of the war in Ukraine. The meeting was also attended by Balazs Orban, the prime minister’s political director, and MCC Director Zoltan Szalai.
Today, Europe is also suffering from a cultural division, and the traditional Western values – national sovereignty, Christian culture, support for families, respect for work – are now more characteristic of Central Europe, PM Orban told the invited scientists, authors, researchers and academics, adding that therefore it is important for the countries of the region to unite and cooperate in the coming crucial years.
The MCC Fest is taking place in the Hungarian city of Esztergom, in the Central Transdanubian region, between 28-30 July. In addition to entertainment, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the Mathias Corvinus Collegium’s range of courses and meet well-known foreign and domestic public figures.
