President Billy introduced our speaker, Zsolt Pap our GRSP student from Hungary, who spoke on his country.

Zsolt was born in Sweden, is a Hungarian citizen, graduated from the Corvinus Business University of Budapest and is currently working on his MBA.

Zsolt explained the change in Hungary since it was established in 1000. As a result of World War I, Hungary is 35% of its original size. The population of Hungary is 10 million, the capital is Budapest. Tourism is an important and growing part of Hungary?s economy. Budapest has a lot to offer. Museums and galleries, churches and synagogues, palaces and historic buildings make Hungary highly rated as a top tourist value by Forbes, CNN, and others. Zsolt?s mother works as a tour guide. Please call Mom when you visit Hungary.

President Billy thanked Zsolt for his presentation.
