Main statements of the steering committee
Main statements of the Steering Committee May 2003)

  • Hungary has a significant history in the field of activities concerning DC. Based on the obtained experience, regional knowledge, intercultural knowledge and relations and concentrating on some important fields the future concept must be formed according to the new conditions and expectations.

  • There is a considerable interest in the experience deriving from the transitional period of the Hungarian economical and political system. Important fields of development cooperation could be those projects, which provide the knowledge transfer concerning the transition’s problems

  • The setting up of the Hungarian expert basis is a primary task, which will be supported by the ministries. A list of experts (who worked for international institutes and took part in foreign projects) registered by each ministry, has to be elaborated. A list of foreign experts invited by the ministries is also required

  • Working with other donors enables Hungary to be more economical, therefore more can be achieved with less resource, and more practice can be learned about the mechanism of developed donor countries. The utilization of sources has to be concentrated, a common, transparent system that also complies with the international norms, has to be developed
