With the persistence, knowledge and efforts of the Hungarian farming community, the Hungarian agriculture and food industry can meet the challenges before it and find the answers that can ensure Hungary’s food security and the highest possible export performance, the Minister of Agriculture stated on Tuesday in Kecskemét.

István Nagy said at the Portfolio Agrárium 2024 conference that it was thanks to the performance of the agricultural economy that “the Hungarian economy did not slip into recession last year, so the Hungarian farming community can rightly be proud”.
He recalled: the set goal is for the export performance of the greyhound and food industry to increase from 10 billion euros to 15 billion euros by 2030, while last year it already closed with a record of 13.8 billion euros.

“So there is reason to say thank you, and let these achievements give strength to the Hungarian farming community in their difficulties and everyday struggles”

– he said.

The minister reminded that last year the amount of subsidies successfully applied for exceeded HUF 1,400 billion, which is also a record and shows that “Hungary has a farmer-friendly government”.
