Hungary has launched an official website,, for its upcoming tenure of the EU's rotating presidency. The six-month period will begin when Belgium officially hands over the presidency to Hungary on Jan. 6.

At a presentation in Budapest on Tuesday, Eniko Gyori, Hungary' s State Secretary for European Affairs, said the website was an " important communication tool" for the messages that Hungary wants to convey during its presidency. The website will contain a significant interactive element, according to Gyori.

"The European Year of Volunteering, for example, which begins officially on Jan. 8, will give increased opportunities for EU citizens to make the EU richer," Gyori said.

"The varied cultural events which will be organized during the presidency will express the diversity within the EU, and particularly within Central Europe, and give people opportunities to express identity in a positive way," Gyori added.

Zoltan Kovacs, State Secretary for Government Communications, said information and news about each event will be posted on the website.
