Economy Minister Zdravko Počivalšek and Minister for Slovenians Abroad Helena Jaklitsch signed a EUR 2.3 million programme for the promotion of the economy of the Slovenian ethnic minority in Hungary in the 2021-2024 period.
“Slovenians are Slovenians, be it here or beyond the border. This programme is the right move for an additional boost and development of the economic basis of the area populated by the Slovenian ethnic minority,” Počivalšek said. Jaklitsch said a “strong economy also means a more self-confident minority, which in turn means more care for the language and development of the potential in cultural life”.
