Conference on the Program Aimed at Developing the 33 Most Disadvantaged Micro-Regions

The National Development Agency and Promei Non-Profit Ltd. jointly organized the first evaluation conference on the complex program aimed at developing of the 33 most disadvantaged micro-regions on 27 May.

The Government nominated the 33 most disadvantaged regions in autumn 2007, on the basis of economic, social and infrastructure indicators, and made a decision on the need to develop these regions with the help of a complex program. Hungary experiences numerous socio-economic processes that have a negative impact on the most disadvantaged regions and social groups where the level of employment in international comparison is particularly low, education is not competitive and the indebtedness of the population is alarmingly increasing. These processes hit the Roma population particularly severely, which also leads to segregation and discrimination.
