The World, including central Europe, became acutely aware of the international migration crisis in the summer of 2015, though you had been warning us regularly of potential disaster for years. We could say that you blew the whistle! Are you happy that people are finally paying attention to you or are you disappointed that it is only happening now?
– Before the systemic political changes in central and eastern Europe, I had spent many years in Africa and had worked on a number of important projects in Sudan. I worked in irrigation and I taught at a university and built excellent relations there. I learned not only about the country but also about the whole problem. When I moved to Gödöllő, I worked as an expert on many FAO projects and taught African agricultural experts at the university. We believed that Sudan, alone, would be able to supply the whole of Africa with good-quality food if suitable methods were available. Sudan has excellent quality land but lacks irrigation, experience and the expertise with which the maximum could be extracted from that land; expertise which is abundantly available in Hungary. Following the political systemic change, Hungary turned its back on Africa and on that problem. Over the past ten years, only we in the African-Hungarian Union have dealt with the problem and kept up the subject.
