It is a great honour and pleasure for me to be able to join you in opening this important joint conference of the Hungarian Economic and Social Council and the European Economic and Social Committee. First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude on behalf of the Committee for your kind and generous invitation to Budapest and for the opportunity to be able to hold this event in the Hungarian Parliament's beautiful and historically significant building. We greatly appreciate this.
