Hungary takes responsibility for drafting Danube Strategy, says PM Bajnai

Hungary assumes a specific responsibility for drafting the EU's Danube Strategy as the document will be up for approval during its EU presidency in the first half of 2011, Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai said in Budapest.

Opening a two-day summit of the European Commission, Bajnai said that Hungary would be willing to become one of the countries to lead the drafting of a strategy for developing cross-border transport infrastructure and public transport, a “flagship project” of the Danube strategy.

Bajnai said Hungary was giving priority to environmentally sound navigation, developing transport based on cutting-edge information technology and extending high-speed rail links in the Danube basin. (MTI – Econews)
