Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has held a meeting in his office with the Hungarian medallists in the 2021 EuroSkills competition for young European skilled workers.
The prime minister's press chief Bertalan Havasi noted that this year’s EuroSkills in Graz marked Hungary’s seventh appearance in the competition. It saw more than 400 competitors from 31 countries demonstrate their skills in 38 different trades and 10 host presentation professions. Hungary was represented by 26 competitors and finished sixth in the medal and points tables, he said. There are around 30,000 vocational students in Hungary studying the skills and professions that are tested at EuroSkills. The tasks related to the competition are handled by the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MKIK) in line with a 2010 agreement with the government.
