The foreign minister has announced that three crossing points have re-opened for commuters at the Hungarian-Serbian border.

Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said Hungarian and Serbian nationals who work or have land to farm on the other side of the border can cross at Röszke, Tompa, and Hercegszántó.

The ban at the border has seriously affected many residents and local businesses in the border region. The new policy will apply to Hungarian and Serbian nationals living within a 50km distance of the border.

Meanwhile, the minister said Hungary’s OTP Bank and oil and gas company MOL would both play key roles in reopening the Serbian and Hungarian economies. In addition, the government will carry on with its economic development scheme in Serbia’s northern Vojvodina region which has so far generated HUF 86 billion (EUR 240.9m) worth of investments.
