Hungary foresees a successful term of European Union presidency, according to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

“Hungary seems to have reached a reassuring level of preparedness,” the minister said in a Jan. 7 press conference, adding that “the odds are in favour of a successful presidential term,” with a more powerful EU and a stronger euro as its measures of success by June 2011.

Hungary took over the EU presidency on Jan. 3.
