In addition, visits are arranged to meet with Janos Horvath, known as the “doyen,” or most senior member, of the Hungarian parliament and president of the Hungarian National Group of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, an international organization of parliaments dating back to 1889. Mr. Horvath fled to the United States following the failed revolution of 1956.
Also scheduled are meetings with Jeno Megysey, a senior adviser to the prime minister and former honorary consul general of Hungary based in Denver, Colo., and with Zoltan Kovacs at Clayton State’s partner institution, the University of Pannonia in Vesxprem, Hungary, where the students are to learn about Hungary’s supply chains and logistics capabilities.
Besides meeting with the students Mr. Szapary also opened the Hungarian Ball as its guest of honor on the evening of Feb. 17 and on the 18th attended ceremonies at the Georgia House of Representatives celebrating the official Hungary Day in Georgia.
