Rural network

Joining Together for the Development of Rural Hungary

The countries of Europe are linked, both economically and socially, by thousands of threads. These threads, drawing people and technologies together, are greatly strengthened and multiplied by employing a common rural policy, for it is a frequent phenomenon these days to see the world shrink almost to the size of a village when dealing with problems together.

We have at hand all the necessary resources and professional skills to preserve our nation's agriculture, forests, waters, natural and communal assets, and regional and national characteristics, and to develop them in innovative ways, as well as to increase our international competitiveness.

The Hungarian National Rural Network will help bring the country closer to, and make it a valuable part of our broader home, the European Union, enriching it with a wealth of pure new colours.
