Gulyás: "We are Close to 80% of EU Development"

EU

We are close to 80% of EU development, and there is a good chance that we will be able to reach 90% by 2030, Gergely Gulyás indicated earlier today at the conference of the Oeconomus Economic Research Foundation.

The event was organized on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of our accession to the EU.

Experts examined where the European Union is headed, how competitiveness developed, and "what we owe to Brussels".

Hungary joined the European Union on May 1, 2004.

Péter Törcsi opened the Oeconomus event on Monday.

The chairman of the board of trustees of the Oeconomus Economic Research Foundation pointed out that there are many more positives associated with our joining than we think.

With regard to the 10 newly joined member states, he also listed a few developments from the past twenty years, to which our EU membership also contributed in part:

  • In 2004, the proportion of children at risk of poverty was 41%, now it is 17%,
  • real wages doubled,
  • poverty was halved
  • In Hungary and Poland, the length of expressways has also tripled.
