Hungary has assumed the rotating presidency of the European Union from Belgium, embarking on a six-month term with a focus on several strategic priorities.

New European Competitiveness Agreement: Hungary aims to enhance the EU's global competitiveness through innovative policies and economic reforms.

Strengthening the EU's defense capabilities and ensuring the security of member states are key goals.

Hungary advocates for a transparent, merit-driven approach to EU enlargement, ensuring aspiring member states meet the necessary criteria.

Preventing illegal immigration is a significant focus, aligning with Hungary's long-standing stance on the issue.

Efforts will be made to refine the EU's cohesion policy to promote balanced regional development across member states.

Hungary will push for agricultural policies that benefit EU farmers, promoting sustainable farming practices and food security.

The presidency will seek solutions to demographic issues such as aging populations and declining birth rates, which affect many EU countries.
