Kálmán PAPP

Former International Director of NWA Hungary (OVF - Országos Vízügyi Főigazgatóság) - Hungary

Some remarks on the occasion of INBO's 25th anniversary: the Hungarian point of view on the Hungarian participation in INBO, by a former member of INBO Liaison Bureau

Hungary was already represented at the constitutive meeting in Aix les Bains/Chambéry in 1994.

Two years later, Mr. Miklós Varga, Director General of the National Water Authority (OVF) signed the accession document in Morelia.

INBO membership provided a solid basis for the principles to be used also in transboundary water management cooperation. And for Hungary, cross-border cooperation is extremely important, with the Carpathian basin, which includes seven riparian countries.

Hungary has also contributed to the creation of EUROPE-INBO.
