Fifteen members of the Észak-Alföld Regional Development Council expressed their interest to participate at the Mini Europe Final Conference in Valencia.

Finally thirteen of them could join the Hungarian delegation, which also included the Director of the Észak-Alföld Regional Development Agency. Council members are mayors, vice-mayors of important cities in the region, or delegates of different Ministries. All of them are important regional decision-makers in terms of the main issues covered by Mini Europe as well.

The conference was really interesting and useful – as well as the study visits organised by Impiva. New ideas and possible cooperation options were born as a result of the event and the “brainstormings” taking place during the study visits and the conference breaks.

Members of the Észak-Alföld Regional Development Council highlighted the importance of creativity, which is one of the most important “engine” of SMEs, and the Mini Europe project as well.

Zoltán PAJNA, president of the Észak-Alföld Regional Development Council:

„I believe that the economic development must rely on the activity and creativity of people. The creativity of people is a significant competitive factor, and it plays an important economic role.

(…)

As the president of the Regional Development Council, I find the effective use of the resources in the region, the public-private partnership and the creation of domestic and international contacts important, in order to make the creative sector play a decisive role in the region’s economy.

(…)

The society having the knowledge about the local, regional and national values, and taking the advantage of this, can increase the economic competitiveness of the region. We supported the establishments which helps promoting the development of the IT, which is one of the most dynamically growing sectors.”

Dr. Ferenc KOVÁCS,mayor of Nyíregyháza County Seat, Member of the Hungarian Parliament:

“We have the pleasure to announce that in 2011 Nyíregyháza is the Capital of the Hungarian Song, which is the result of the civil society alliance, initiated by the creative people living in the city. Bordered by three countries Nyíregyháza is the capital of Szabolcs-Szatmár County, and it is also the most eastern city of Hungary. We are a meeting point between east and west.

(…)

Our city is one of the region’s research and development centres. The main base of higher education is Nyíergyháza College, which developed close cooperation with large companies operating in Nyíregyháza in the past decades. It now also appears in the secondary vocational education also, the outstanding example is the LEGO-workshop run jointly by the government.”
