Speaking about the Mohács 500 program related to the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Mohács scheduled for 2026, which also serves regional development goals, he highlighted: The goal is for Mohács to become the logistical center of southern Hungary, and perhaps one of southeastern Europe.

The politician said: According to the plans, investments in Baranja could open the region to Serbia and Croatia, and the developments could make it “a gateway to the Balkans, and an important economic center.”

Regarding the future, he said: The government also has plans for the airport near Pécs to play a more prominent role in the region's economy, and the establishment of the so-called “Pannonian Industrial Park” in the city district is also in preparation.

With Croatia joining the Schengen Area, new border crossings may be opened in Baranja in the future, and with developments, Pécs is expected to expand its economic influence to the regions south of it.
