Gov't allocates HUF 97 billion to support most disadvantaged regions

The government has allocated HUF 97 billion to support the convergence of Hungary's 33 most disadvantaged communities, Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai said at a conference on Wednesday.

About 1 million people live in the communities, in the Great Plain region, North Hungary and South Transdanubia, Bajnai said. The communities are 15% behind the country's more developed regions, he added.

The programme will only be successful if one-third of the communities advance at least one category in 6-8 years, Bajnai said. (MTI-ECONEWS)
