Civil partnership between Austria and Hungary

The Director of the European House had a productive meeting in Vienna with Mr Franz Neunteufl, Head of the Austrian umbrella body Interessenvertretung Gemeinnützinger Organisationen (IGO) and were of the opinion that civil society contacts and interactions between the two neighbouring countries should be intensified. Exchange of information and visits should be the first steps and European issues including the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) are important reference points for both sides. Agreement was also reached on partnerships in joint projects.
