Always a highlight of the festive season, when once a year we come together in Washington D.C. with our superb honorary consuls and colleagues from all around the US to discuss the past year’s achievements and plan ahead the forthcoming year. High ranking representatives of the Hungarian Government – H.E. Ms. Katalin Novák, State Secretary for Family and Youth Affairs and H.E. Mr. Ferenc Kumin, Deputy Secretary for the Development of European and American Relations – from Budapest were also with us as guests of honours. The Consulate General of Hungary in New York City was represented by H.E. Mr. István Pásztor, Consul General and our diplomats (Ms. Judit Czako, Mr. Tamas Novak, Mr. Peter B. Nagy). Thank you for your service for Hungary, our valued honorary consuls.
