They voted! EUR 12 billion (approximately HUF 4,200 billion) is EU funding for Hungarian farmers until 2027

(The amount is almost the same as the amount of resources that can be used in the period 2014-2020!)

They voted!  EUR 12 billion (approximately HUF 4,200 billion) is EU funding for Hungarian farmers until 2027

🧡Fidesz supported the proposal!
⛔️The left attacked Hungarian farmers in the back, voted no!🤮

They proved once again that they are the enemies of Hungary. They are angry when we say this, but in the meantime we state that with their NO vote they are not harming Orbán, but Hungarian farmers, ie all of us, as subsidies will make products cheaper, the Hungarian economy will be more crisis-tolerant and Hungarian farmers will be more competitive. The package also contains 30 percent environmental regulations, the left wanted Hungarian farmers to devote at least 50 percent of their resources to environmental protection, which is unrealistically much! 30% is not enough, but it is a compromise solution for the benefit of all of us and our future.

The left attacked Hungarian farmers in the back.
The European Parliament voted on Friday on the Union's Common Agricultural Policy until 2027. The proposal means billions of euros for Hungarian farmers. Hungarian left-wing MEPs did not support this. Fortunately, this time a majority in the European Parliament showed sobriety and voted in favor of the proposal, along with representatives of the Fidesz-KDNP.

In the future, the focus will be on results and performance, not on rules and compliance. The shift from a one-size-fits-all approach to a personalized approach will help make the policy more relevant to those who implement it on the ground. This approach gives Member States much more freedom to decide how best to meet common objectives and come up with effective solutions in response to the needs of their farmers, rural communities and society as a whole.

At EU level, an additional € 10 billion will be available through the Horizon Europe research program. This amount is intended to support research and innovation activities specifically related to the food industry, agriculture, rural development and the organic economy. Horizon Europe will play a key role in building the knowledge base needed to modernize the agricultural sector. Synergies between Horizon Europe (transnational projects) and the CAP (regional / local level projects and CAP networks) will help build an agricultural knowledge base and innovation system aimed at accelerating the diffusion of innovative practices among all actors in rural areas.

The Commission proposes to maintain the existing list of potentially eligible sectors (ie those eligible for voluntary coupled support since 2013. In addition, the Commission proposes to extend this list to non-food crops used for the production of products (short rotation coppice, woody energy crops and trees), which are potentially suitable as a substitute for fossil fuels.

How will the future CAP help young farmers?

One of the main priorities of the post-2020 common agricultural policy is to make the agricultural sector more attractive to young people and to help them set up viable production facilities. The proposed regulation provides for a number of measures, partly mandatory and partly voluntary, to support young farmers:
Member States must specifically devote at least 2% of the funds allocated to direct payments to helping young people to set up an agricultural business - either in the form of a supplement to the basic income support or a start-up aid; Member States have the option of allocating more amounts to support young farmers if they deem it appropriate.
The amount of support for the establishment of young farmers and business start-ups in rural areas will increase to 100 thousand euros.
In the Common Strategic Plan for the Common Agricultural Policy, each country must come up with a concrete idea of ​​how it plans to increase the attractiveness of agriculture to young people and support young farmers. The strategy for this should also address how national and EU funding can be used more consistently and effectively for this purpose.
The funds available to support rural development can be used for measures to improve access to land and the transfer of land, as this has traditionally been a major barrier to young people interested in agriculture taking up farming. These measures could include: the establishment of economic partnerships between different generations of farmers; the provision of farm succession and conversion planning services; provision of brokerage services relating to the purchase of land; creation of innovative national or regional organizations that facilitate or promote cooperation between young and old farmers, etc.
Young producers will continue to receive investment support and knowledge transfer / training through rural development funds.
Member States will have the opportunity to set up financing instruments to provide young farmers with working capital, as access to resources is often a major obstacle for them, given that setting up an agricultural business requires a significant investment with a low initial return. . In addition, the Commission will work more closely with the European Investment Bank, in particular on the "fi-compass" platform, to learn from experience and best practices in supporting young farmers.

Another cheap left-liberal propaganda: "demonstrates for 65 hours at Greenpeace Orbán's office"

there is just no reason

Another cheap left-liberal propaganda: "demonstrates for 65 hours at Greenpeace Orbán's office"

If a political agitprop organization called Greenpeace, Mérce, and other fake news factories followed the Numbers page, they would know exactly what the government is demanding now, long ago, namely 10 years ago. It does not plan, it will not do, but it will do so in the course of practical steps worth many thousands of billions of forints.

We will be climate neutral by 2050, at a price of HUF 50,000 billion. It’s not a spelling, it’s a horribly large amount that we have to produce before that, because no one is going to take over this for us. So, if someone thinks that the goal can be achieved before the target date of 2050, bring about 10-20 thousand billion forints to the demonstration.

We show item by item what the government is doing, what Hungary is doing to make the goal sustainable.

Climate protection, economic development and energy security must be pursued together

Climate protection, economic development and energy security are not mutually exclusive goals, while climate policy goals must be achieved while guaranteeing economic growth and security of energy supply, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Policy of the Ministry of Innovation and Technology said at the Budapest Climate Summit conference on Friday.
Péter Kaderják emphasized that the investment needs that will serve the transition to carbon-free could provide many opportunities for domestic companies to find business opportunities and create green jobs in the transition.

The Secretary of State recalled that the strategic documents were published at the beginning of the year, Hungary undertook to be climate-neutral by 2050.

Péter Kaderják emphasized that the implementation of the measures had begun. As he said, the flagship project of the energy and climate policy strategy is the gradual decarbonisation of the electricity sector.

If carbon-free electricity is available in large quantities, the second largest polluting sector, transport, can also be partially decarbonised, and there are significant opportunities to replace gas with electricity in the area of ​​heating, he pointed out.

The decisive element of the decarbonisation policy is the removal of lignite from the domestic system by 2030 at the latest, as well as the expansion of renewable energy capacities, especially solar energy, he explained. He added that the modernization of the electricity grid is also needed to accommodate the significant renewable energy capacity.

By achieving the set goals, Hungary is also making progress in the field of energy independence, Péter Kaderják emphasized, indicating that the country's net import demand has been over 30 percent in recent years.

In connection with the phasing out of the most polluting electricity generation technology, the Secretary of State highlighted the phasing out of the lignite-based units at the Mátra Power Plant and the transformation of the power plant into a low-carbon company.

As a result of conscious and consistent work, the government adopted the energy and climate policy strategy documents and set definite goals in them - emphasized László Palkovics, Minister of Innovation and Technology, at the meeting of the Parliamentary Committee on Sustainable Development on Tuesday in Budapest.

Presenting the documents, the Minister recalled, among other things, that Hungary had joined the European Union's expectation to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. However, in order to implement it, it is necessary to know the exact legal, technological and financial environment - László Palkovics indicated the government's position.

According to calculations made by the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM), about HUF 50,000 billion is needed to achieve climate neutrality in Hungary by 2050. This is not only expected from EU subsidies, but especially not from citizens, the biggest polluters will have to bear a significant share of the costs, the minister said. He added that, according to the Hungarian position, nuclear energy is part of the solution to climate problems.

The Minister also mentioned that the Ministry will develop the National Clean Development Strategy necessary to achieve 2050 climate neutrality by the end of the year. He emphasized that the model calculations related to the HUF 50,000 billion cost are carried out on the basis of different approaches. As he said, the amount represents 2-2.5 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) per year for the next 30 years

Speaking about the Mátra Power Plant, László Palkovics said that the goal was to transform it before 2030 so that it would continue to serve the interests of domestic energy security and the economy, but the environmental load caused by the power plant would be eliminated. The Minister also reported on the results of the questionnaires published by the Ministry; among others, he said that more than 200,000 people had completed it and that 92 percent of respondents supported the government’s position to make Hungary climate-neutral by 2050.

Péter Kaderják, ITM Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Policy, said in detail that the new National Energy Strategy focused on providing clean, smart and affordable energy services to consumers. Climate protection, security of supply and competitiveness go together in the plans. As stated, climate protection and economic growth are not contradictory but mutually reinforcing goals.

The Secretary of State emphasized the central role of consumers, strengthening security of energy supply, climate-friendly transformation of the energy sector, and encouraging energy innovation. He emphasized the importance of cost-effectiveness and climate policy measures that add value, reduce import dependence, help maintain the results of overhead reductions, and contribute to economic development through innovative solutions.

Hungary undertakes to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. The country will increase the current 13 percent share of renewable energy sources to a minimum of 21 percent by 2030, and also undertakes that by 2030, despite the dynamic economic growth, the energy consumption of the Hungarian economy will not rise above the 2005 level, Péter Kaderják explained.

At a press conference following the committee meeting, Erzsébet Schmuck (LMP), chairman of the board, said she welcomed the fact that the government had begun to take climate policy issues seriously, but considered the goals set out in the documents to be small. As an example, he cited the government’s goal of a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030, even though the country had already reached that level in 2013, but has lost it in the past five years. The LMP politician explained he is confident that the government will raise the reduction target.

Erzsébet Schmuck objected that the government intended to legitimize the Paks II with the adopted documents and goals. investment he called unacceptable. According to the chairman of the committee, the planned 21 percent share of renewable energy sources is also low. He also explained that the date of 2029 is too far away for the closure of the Mátra Power Plant, and his party, the LMP, is still proposing 2025. Despite criticisms, Erzsébet Schmuck considered the committee meeting a success.

László Palkovics emphasized at the press conference: the government is not declaring a climate emergency, but is analyzing the situation, drawing conclusions and determining what to do. He also emphasized that the Hungarian government does not accept that the costs of the consequences of climate change should be passed on to people, and that the price of food and energy should not rise as a result. In the EU negotiations, Hungary is trying to enforce this, he added.

Regarding emissions reductions, he said: Hungary has indeed approached a 40 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions, but due to government measures taken after the 2008 crisis, the economy was not in a position in 2013 to sustain it. The economy has been growing since 2013, and as a result, in 2018, despite the economy expanding by more than 5 percent, carbon dioxide emissions fell by 0.7 percent, the minister explained.

He said that if the European Union sets more ambitious goals, Hungary has a good chance of being able to achieve them. With regard to renewable energy, he also mentioned that the set 21 percent is the minimum target, and the rate reached by 2030 may be even higher. László Palkovics also emphasized that without nuclear energy, climate targets are unachievable.

The country and settlement afforestation program of the Ministry of Agriculture is a huge success. With numbers

The country and settlement afforestation program of the Ministry of Agriculture is a huge success.  With numbers

Some people talk about "vegetables" and some people take action: While Gergely Karácsony lied about planting a tree for every child born in Budapest, the Government is taking real, visible and tangible steps on climate protection. We also made a longer list, which can be found in Article 2, cited at source.

‼ ️Geri, where are the 15,000 trees? It’s a difficult question, we give you time to prepare. (Since the October election, roughly that many children have been born in Budapest, and this is the second tree planting season, the second November is approaching)

Let's see what the government does:
Trees and forests must be seen as the key to the future, the basis of existence. The Ministry of Agriculture is also working in this spirit, said János Nagy, Deputy State Secretary for Land Affairs, on the afforestation in Csákvár. The politician stressed that since the change of regime, there have been no afforestation initiatives that have moved so many settlements.

The purpose of the Settlement Afforestation Program is threefold. The most important thing is to draw attention to the importance of afforestation, the support of the Rural Development Program available to local governments, we learned from the communication of the Ministry of Agriculture. The program also aims to encourage local participation, so with the help of a forester and gardener everywhere, the local community organizes plantings. In order to achieve the government's goal and increase the quality of life of the people, I would like to increase the green areas in the interior, said János Nagy.

The Deputy Secretary of State of the Ministry of Agriculture said at the event that the positive environmental impact of trees and urban forests is extremely important and extremely diverse. They play a role in temperature equalization, providing shade, producing oxygen, but without them there is no air purity or even dust and noise filtration. Parks and park forests have an irreplaceable role in health protection and recreation, ie in physical-mental-mental recharging.

János Nagy explained that the increase of afforestation subsidies of the Rural Development Program brought the expected result, as farmers submitted applications for the planting of more than 17,000 hectares of new forests and the establishment of 3,000 hectares of industrial wood plantations. In addition, the Settlement Afforestation Program was of great interest, as the row trees available for both the autumn and spring planting periods ran out within an hour. Under the program, a total of 12,000 row trees and the tools needed to plant the trees were provided to nearly 500 settlements with less than 10,000 inhabitants, said János Nagy.

European record investment in Győr!

Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, announced live!

European record investment in Győr!

Video:https://www.facebook.com/szijjarto.peter.official/videos/349774166293644

Audi and E.ON have built a solar park of 160,000 square meters, consisting of 36,000 solar panels, generating 9.6 gigawatt hours of electricity per year, taking a significant step towards the plant’s carbon-neutral operation.

🟢The value of the investment is HUF 4 billion
🟢The solar power plant produces enough electricity to meet the energy needs of 5,000 households.
🟢It is the largest rooftop solar power plant in Europe, which
🟢5000 tonnes less harmful substances are released into the air.

Péter Szijjártó emphasized that in addition to solar energy, the government continues to insist on the institution of overhead reduction, Hungarian companies and Hungarian people should pay the lowest overhead.

The left is lying that the government does not support renewable energy, even though that is not true, it is a lie.
Solar energy accounted for 27.3% of total Hungarian electricity production in April, which is no coincidence, as more than 50 solar power plants are already operating in Hungary.

This announcement also shows how forward-looking the government was when it created one of the lowest tax systems in Europe, resolving the fact that the price of gas and electricity would be one of our cheapest. All of these contribute to the fact that Hungary can be one of the 10 most attractive investment destinations in the world, which has largely contributed to the fact that AUDI and E.ON are not downsizing in Hungary, but developing.

Thank you and congratulations!

23 new Mercedes-Benz Conecto G type articulated buses to Székesfehérvár. (with video)

23 new Mercedes-Benz Conecto G type articulated buses to Székesfehérvár.  (with video)

There is no need to talk about climate protection, like Gergely Karácsony, who pollutes the city 's air with artificial plugs, but to take meaningful steps. and that is exactly what the government is doing. With this purchase, the average age of the articulated buses used in the city will go below 4 years.

Dr. András Cser-Palkovics wrote:

"‼ ️The brand new articulated buses have arrived and we are ordering eight more of them!‼ ️
In the spring, we signed a contract with Volánbus for the purchase of 15 low-floor Mercedes-Benz Conecto buses equipped with Euro 6 engines. The first copies of the 15th quota have also arrived, and Volánbusz has made an offer to purchase another 8 of the same vehicle, which I will submit to the General Assembly for approval on Friday. The operation of the 23 new buses will cost the local government about 120 million forints a year, but we will not stop here, in the coming years we would like to continue the modernization of the bus fleet with solo buses, preferably with electric or gas vehicles! "

🇭🇺Video:https://www.facebook.com/cserpalkovicsandras/videos/409587500009770

On the Numbers page, we previously reported that Volánbusz will buy and market a total of 3,200 new buses nationwide by 2022. The government has merged the various Volán companies, creating a nationwide, well-functioning, well-organized company, the results of which can already be enjoyed by passengers. Our article on this:

We support the purchase of electric-assisted bicycles: in October, we will announce a tender with a budget of one billion forints, and new vehicles may even be included under the Christmas tree.🚲🚲

In the framework of the Climate and Nature Action Plan announced in February this year, promoting electromobility is a priority for our government, as electric vehicles emit much less pollutants and noise than other vehicles, which can go a long way in cleaning urban air, reducing noise and raising people's living standards. is. As for the development of cycling, with serious planning, bike paths and storage placements are taking place across the country so that as many people as possible and as easily as possible can use their bikes for commuting or leisure.

Today, the Secretary of State Péter Kaderják and Government Commissioners Máriusz Révész, as well as Gábor Kürti, President of the Hungarian Cycling Club and Róbert Sipiczki, President of the Hungarian Cycling and Trade Association, called the press for this tender and hope to get more people's attention.

30 new articulated Mercedes buses for Budapest, 60 for rural cities

30 new articulated Mercedes buses for Budapest, 60 for rural cities

New, air-conditioned, low-floor and blue: the low-floor bus fleet is expanding in Budapest. Volánbusz Zrt. Bought the 30 new articulated Mercedes buses for the Budapest agglomeration flights, with the help of the budget resources provided by the Government. The first bus is now on the market, the other 29 will follow this year.

In March of this year, Volánbusz signed a contract with ITK Holding's subsidiary Inter Traction Electrics Kft. For the purchase of Mercedes-Benz Conecto G city articulated buses. The low-floor, air-conditioned bus fleet, which is being built all over Turkey, is in production and is expected to be on the market later this year.

The articulated buses, which offer 37 seats and 84 seats, are barrier-free and can also be used with a wheelchair or pram, similar to the Mercedes Conecto G articulated cars already operated by BKV and VT Arriva in Budapest. The six-cylinder, 360-horsepower diesel engines also meet the state-of-the-art Euro 6d environmental standard.

Some safety, diagnostic, passenger information systems and a closed cab will be installed in the buses at the Hungarian supplier in Debrecen, where they will also be placed on the market, so there will be domestic added value in the vehicles.

The hinges made in blue will be available on the 169E, 89E-89E-94E bus family in Pécel and on the flights from Csepel to Szigetszentmiklós. and XXI. district.

Volánbusz also sells sixty similar buses in rural cities, which - in yellow, white and silver - go to Győr and Székesfehérvár, for example.

Trendy topic of climate protection, they also like to talk about it a lot of left-wing politicians. Let’s see who speaks and who acts!

Trendy topic of climate protection, they also like to talk about it a lot of left-wing politicians.  Let’s see who speaks and who acts!

Gergely Karácsony promised a tree after every child born in Budapest. Somehow we don't see where the roughly 10-12 thousand trees that the mayor owes to the people of Budapest since October are. But it has also promised a panel program, which would obviously also be important for climate protection, because if we have to heat less, we will also put less strain on our environment by producing heat, extracting, transporting and buying the energy needed for it. Instead of election promises, there was a climate hyst demonstration with foreign students, artificial traffic jams, a dirty, neglected city, trees cut down in several streets, and several projects stopped by Gergely Karácsony, which could clean up and green the environment. since if e.g. if the modern center hospital had been built, then the supply could have moved from several outdated buildings, the outdated buildings could even have been demolished, and parks could be created in their place. Anyone who has seen what the central hospital is designed for understands what we are talking about, we place a link to the others at the source.

In contrast, there are those who act:

- 450 million trees planted since 2010
- In 2019, the forests expanded by 6,000 hectares
- The forests will be expanded by another 24,000 hectares this year and in the coming years
- Settlement afforestation program
- Railway development, energy modernizations
- Irrigation development

Farmers have applied for permission to plant more than 17,000 hectares of new forest

Together with the applications already in progress, the size of the wooded areas in Hungary may increase by 24,000 hectares.
In the afforestation program announced last autumn, farmers applied for the planting of more than 17,000 hectares of new forest, said the Deputy State Secretary for Forests of the Ministry of Agriculture (MoD) on Tuesday. in his show.

According to Sándor Szentpéteri, together with the already pending applications, the size of wooded areas in Hungary may increase by 24,000 hectares, which is important because in this way the negative effects of climate change can be mitigated.

He added that at the same time, the settlement afforestation program was launched, for which towns and villages with less than 10,000 inhabitants could apply.

The program could apply for 12,000 large, mostly native trees, and in a few hours they could all be distributed in the summer, he said.

The trees will be transported and planted by the National Forestry Association in two phases in autumn and spring, added Sándor Szentpéteri.

By 2022, the Volánbusz, which has been providing nationwide services since October last year, will launch a total of 3,200 new buses.

6 new articulated buses were handed over in Zalaegerszeg

By 2022, the Volánbusz, which has been providing nationwide services since October last year, will launch a total of 3,200 new buses.

New Euro 6 buses instead of air conditioning.

Six new, state-of-the-art buses will be commissioned at the same time in Zalaegerszeg, the city's mayor said.

Zoltán Balaicz (Fidesz – KDNP) explained that the bus fleet with an average age of over 15 has consisted of 35 vehicles, with the six new buses now on the market, the average age will fall below 12 years.

The Volánbusz, which provides local public transport services, spent about 800 million forints on new vehicles. The company has a long-term contract with Zalaegerszeg until the end of 2023, as part of which the bus fleet is being rejuvenated, the mayor added. Zoltán Balaicz also said that the six new, air-conditioned articulated buses have low floors, so that people with reduced mobility and strollers can use them, and it is planned that they will provide free internet access to passengers in the future.

László Vigh, Member of Parliament for the region (Fidesz), as Ministerial Commissioner of the test track under construction, noted that as the test track is the most important field of innovation, the newly acquired buses also have modern equipment, such as lowering the floor level at the stop.

Csaba Ungvári, Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Volánbusz Zrt., Spoke about the fact that the purchase of vehicles not only improves passenger comfort, but also the working conditions of their employees and drivers. According to the information distributed at the Volánbusz site, the new Mercedes-Benz Conecto G buses will not be in operation only in Zalaegerszeg, as ninety such vehicles will be on the market nationwide by the end of the year. At the same time, the number of new or innovative buses in local and intercity transport will increase to 866 between autumn 2018 and the end of this year.

The left likes to talk about public transport and make it look as if they support public transport over passenger cars. The reality, unfortunately, is that under the left-wing government, the vehicle fleet has aged and the Volán companies have been pushed to the brink of bankruptcy, thousands of people have been fired and taken to the streets, flights have been canceled and everything has been done to force our country to the floor.

After the change of approach in 2010, developments started, not only the vehicles will be replaced, but also the related infrastructure. Stations, stops, intermodal centers are being built and renovated.

On October 1, 2019, with the merger of the six regional transport centers, the third state company employing the largest number of employees in Hungary was established - Volánbusz, which now provides a nationwide service.

The current bus procurement rate of Volánbus will multiply in the next 2 years, with 3,200 new vehicles arriving in addition to the roughly 700 new buses launched so far in Volán's fleet of 6,500 units. This will replace 60% of vehicles and reduce the CO2 emissions of buses operated by Volánbus by 38% over the next four years.
