26th annual meeting of the German-Hungarian Forum
The 26th annual meeting of the German-Hungarian Forum took place in Budapest on 25-26 October 2016 and was hosted by the Andrássy University Budapest. Around 200 participants from politics, economy, science, civil society and media attended the conference. This year’s forum focused on German and Hungarian perspectives on European policy issues. Current topics and challenges facing the EU were debated in the high-ranking panels. The demographic development, its consequences for the labor market in Europa as well as the current political situation in the EU were open for discussion. The participants continued to work in the following groups: “Competitiveness of Europe: New Ways and Concepts – Corporate potential” (WG Economics) and “The EU-Turkey Relations Mirrored in the German and Hungarian Media” (WG Media).
