Hungarian, Slovak committee meets to discuss cross-border projects

The Hungarian-Slovak intergovernmental mixed committee has held a two-day meeting in Szécsény, north Hungary, the Hungarian Justice and Public Administration Ministry told MTI.

The meeting ending on Thursday was the 14th session of the committee, and it was co-chaired by Erika Szabó, a state secretary at the Hungarian Justice Ministry and by Maros Zilinka, a state secretary at the Slovak Interior Ministry.

The meeting discussed twin city cooperation and cross-border public transport projects, infrastructure and tourism projects and work groups were set up to oversee these projects, a statement released after the session said.

A Hungarian-Slovak consortium won €7 million in EU funding in 2009 to build two Ipoly bridges. The EU funding covers 85% of the total cost of investment, with the remainder to be financed jointly by Slovakia and Hungary.
