Hungary, Austria farm ministers to meet in January

In Hungary

Austrian and Hungarian farm ministers are expected to meet at the end of January to discuss Hungary’s new land law and Austria’s related concerns, local news daily Magyar Nemzet reported yesterday.

Background discussions are now under way on the format and the date of the ministerial meeting, Rural Development Minister Sándor Fazekas informed the ‘paper.

Talks were initiated by Austrian minister of agriculture Andrä Rupprechter in December, who had written to Fazekas with objections to some stipulations of Hungary’s new land law slated to go into effect in May which would “strip Austrian farmers of their rights to benefit from Hungarian farmland … [for] which they have paid in advance to recipients.”
