Spending on the government's Modern Cities program, launched in 2017 to support upgrades in Hungary's biggest cities outside the capital, reached HUF 2 trillion or half of the estimated total budget by the end of last year, the Prime Minister's Office said, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Government commissioner in charge of the program Alpár Gyopáros said the scheme includes developments worth a total HUF 4 tln. 

He added that the program would continue in 2021, with projects providing economic stimulus and creating jobs as well as projects in the areas of culture, health, urban development, sports and recreation, and infrastructure in Hungary's 23 cities with county rights.
