Mentoring program strengthens economic network in the Carpathian Basin

Hungarian entrepreneurs employ Hungarians not only in Transylvania, but almost everywhere in the Carpathian Basin.

According to MTI, János Árpád Potápi, Minister of State for National Policy at the Prime Minister’s Office, “this network means that we can increasingly speak of one economic area when talking about the Carpathian Basin.” 

Potápi’s comments came at an online press conference on Thursday, opening the second season of the Transylvanian mentoring program. He added that the success of the first season of the program had led to an even higher number of applicants for the second phase, which is now starting: 111 participants and 59 mentors, a total of 170 participants.

The program provides an opportunity for business people to get to know each other and for large entrepreneurs to help start-up micro and small enterprises by sharing their professional experience and knowledge, the minister said.

Launched in Vojvodina at the end of 2019, the organizers then introduced the first season in Transylvania. Now, mentoring programs in Croatia, the Slovakian Highlands and Transcarpathia are running in parallel, and the second season of the Transylvanian mentoring program will be launched at the same time, the state secretary said. 

According to János Árpád Potápi, their research proves that Hungarian entrepreneurs employ Hungarians not only in Transylvania, but almost everywhere in the Carpathian Basin. He added that Hungarian entrepreneurs in these regions are establishing professional and business contacts with Hungarian companies to strengthen the Hungarian economy.  

The mentoring program is being implemented by the Hungarian State Secretariat for National Policy, the Pro Economica Foundation and Design Terminal.
