To mark the 30th anniversary of the Romanian revolution, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said Hungary stands ready to build, together with its neighbors, including Romania, a new central Europe.
During a commemoration event in western Romania’s Timisoara (Temesvár), PM Orbán told guests gathered at a gala evening that the aim is to turn central Europe into one of the most successful and most competitive regions in the world.
The prime minister said that in such a future central Europe, cities would be connected by motorways and high-speed trains. He said that everyone in the region would have a job and it would again be home to those who had left it to go and work abroad, adding that the point of concern would be deciding what to do with guest workers coming from western Europe. “If we cooperate, it will be possible, and this is what will be the new European reality,” he said.
PM Orbán added that Hungary wants to become a European country where it is a privilege to live and work; a country that strives to use future technologies and seeks to create the cleanest natural environment. Besides all this, Hungary wants to remain one of the safest countries in the world. It is a lot easier for Hungary to achieve these goals in partnership with its neighbors than on its own, he said.
The prime minister concluded his address at the gala event by stating that he saw a good chance for Romanians and Hungarians to have common goals.
