As President of the European Economic and Social Committee, I would like to draw a number of conclusions that are particularly important to me from the very rich contributions to and discussions at our conference in Budapest. With your permission, we will pass these conclusions on to political decision-makers in the European Union.

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.
