A Council for Settlement Agglomerational Development to be formed in Debrecen
The city of Debrecen is bent on sharing her economic development experience with the agglomerational settlements in order to promote the ambition of the Eastern Region of Hungary to become one of the most competitive regions in Europe – said Mr. László Papp, mayor of Debrecen at his press conference on February 20, 2019.
Debrecen joins forces with twenty settlements in Hajdú-Bihar and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg counties in forming the Debrecen Agglomerational Development Council. Unique in the country, this body is intended to harmonize the economic, educational, cultural and touristical developments in the settlements participating in this cooperation. The mayors in the municipalities concerned in the matter as well as the MPs of the constituencies in the region signed a declaration of intent to form such a body on February 20, 2019.
