EU agrees on budget
Hungary will receive three and a half times more funds from the European Union after 2007 than at present, Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány said later on Saturday. In terms of EU funds per capita, Hungary will be the second country among the 25 members of the EU, he said. The amount of money to become available to Hungary between 2007 and 2013 represents half of the total of Hungary's national debt. Compared to the original British proposal, Hungary will receive €1 billion more, which is the largest increase among all new EU members, the prime minister said.
