Budapest (MTI) – Some 21 billion forints (EUR 67m) will be available for tourism developments in Hungary next year, more than ever before, House Speaker László Kövér said at the inauguration of a hotel in Lenti, near Hungary’s border with Slovenia, on Sunday.
Some 11 billion forints of state funding will be allocated for tourism developments next year, nearly double the 6 billion forints this year, Kövér said. The amount will be topped up with 10 billion forints in European Union funding he added.
From 2018, a 4 percent tourism development contribution will be used to support investments in the sector, he said.
