The signing is one of the items on the itinerary for Orbán’s official visit to Slovakia. The project to connect the Slovak and Hungarian gas distribution networks is part of a broader plan comprising several individual, interlinked projects. The north-south corridor is designed to connect gas terminals in Poland and Croatia, and its pipelines will traverse all V4 countries, including Slovakia and Hungary.
