Szentgotthárd - Monošter Initiative

The two embassies, the Municipality of Szentgotthárd and the Central European Service for Cross-border Initiatives organize the fourth Slovene-Hungarian Annual Forum on the 18th of June 2018. The venue of the event will be the Mayor’s Office of the border town this time as well.

On the 21st and 22nd of April 2015, under the auspice of the ambassadors of the two countries, Hungarian and Slovenian mayors, businessmen, experts of regional development and representatives of the academic sphere met in Szentgotthárd / Monošter in order to unfold the potentials of cooperation, to share their ideas with their neighbours and to find partners for concrete projects. The parties then signed the Szentgotthárd / Monošter call and initiated a regular annual meeting where the cooperation between stakeholders of the neighbouring nations can be enhanced and enlarged.

This year, the key topic of the seminar will be the tool-kit for the economic and social development of abandoned and ageing areas, including the agrarian sector, silver economy and tourism. The afternoon panels are devoted to the problems and development potentials of the concrete border region this time.

The participation is free but registration is needed.

The forum is financed by the Prime Minister's Office of Hungary.
