Welcome to the Statistics Website of the Hungarian Presidency
of the Council of the European Union
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the statistics website of the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Since this is the first time for Hungary to hold the presidency, it is both an honour and a great challenge for us to be in this position.
In accordance with the programme of the Spanish-Belgian-Hungarian trio Presidency the Hungarian Presidency will continue to promote the implementation of the European Statistics Code of Practice, the improvement of the quality, reliability and transparency of the statistical production, the decrease of administrative burden.
In line with the above priorities, the Hungarian Presidency will organise a conference in June 2011 with the title “Communication: a tool to enhance statistical culture”.
We are looking forward to this six month period with great expectations, and hoping that your constructive contributions and our efforts will result in a more strengthened European Statistical System.
Dr. Gabriella Vukovich
President, Hungarian Central Statistical Office
