On the first weekend in May, members of the Friends of Hungary Foundation will come from all over the world to spend the weekend together in Budapest for the sixth time. Attendees of the private Friends of Hungary Conference will spend the weekend exchanging ideas, sharing stories of one another’s and the motherland’s successes and raising awareness about the challenges and problems faced by their communities.
The Foundation, which aims to serve as a bridge connecting Hungarians living in the Carpathian Basin with their compatriots in the diaspora, will hold its annual conference this weekend between 3-5 May. After a visit to their respective Embassies, President János Áder will receive the delegates — many of whom are recognized diplomats, scientists and artists — of the Foundation on Friday at the Sándor Palace in the Buda Castle. The conference will continue with a Gala Dinner, where state officials will also be present. The evening program will conclude with performances by Ákos and the Hungarian National Philharmonic.
