After the implementation of the Baltic Sea Region Strategy, the European Union is working on the elaboration of a new macro-regional strategy for the Danube Region. As part of this area and future holder of the EU's rotating Council Presidency, Hungary would like to play a decisive role in the implementation of the new idea.
