Hungarian Gov't Aims To Make Hungary Top Region Of CE Tourism By 2030
The government is dedicated to making Hungary a top tourism region in central Europe by the year 2030 and ready to provide all the available local and European Union resources to achieve this goal, head of the Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office Antal Rogán said.

The government plans to spend 828 billion forints (EUR 2.6bn) on tourism development outside Budapest in the upcoming decade, Rogán said at the opening of an amusement park in Zalaszabar, in western Hungary, which was built from more than one billion forints.

Tourism development in Hungary has been undiminished in the past three years, with the number of guest nights increasing by around 10% annually.

Half of this was thanks to foreign visitors and half to domestic guests, he said.
