02/10/2008 - In the lead-up to joining the European Union, Hungary made significant progress in reducing air and water pollution and protecting its nature and biodiversity. OECD’s latest Review of the Environmental Performance of Hungary recommends that it redouble its efforts, in order to further reduce pollution and use energy and raw materials more efficiently.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría, together with Hungarian President László Sólyom and Minister of Environment and Water Imre Szabó, presented the report in Budapest on 2 October 2008 (read his speech).
