HUNGARIAN OFFICIAL PRESENTS VOJVODINA AUTONOMY PLAN.
Tibor Szabo, chairman of the Office for Hungarians
Beyond Borders, told MTI on 12 August that during his
current visit to Washington, he presented a plan for
Vojvodina's autonomy to Steve Flanagan, special
assistant to the president and senior adviser on
Central and East European affairs on the National
Security Council. Szabo said the government in
Budapest "fully supports" the plan, which was worked
out by six Hungarian organizations from the region,
but acknowledged that Washington "has not made any
decision to support the idea of autonomy for
Vojvodina." He said that Flanagan promised the plan
will be "carefully scrutinized." Later the same day,
Szabo told a forum of U.S. citizens of Hungarian
origin in Washington that the U.S. has "shown
interest" in the idea of autonomy. MS

HUNGARY LEADS FIELD IN CAPITAL INFLOW. Hungary is
leading the field in per capita inflow of foreign
capital, "Vilaggazdasag" reported on 12 August, citing
figures recently published by the OECD. Between 1990
and 1998, capital worth some $17.193 billion flowed
into the country, putting Hungary ahead of the Czech
Republic, South Korea, Ireland, and Japan. Poland is
ahead in terms of total volume with $23 billion, but
on a per capita basis Hungary, which has a population
of 10 million, ranks higher, MTI reported. MS

U.S. SURVEY SAYS TOO MANY COMMANDERS IN HUNGARIAN
ARMY. According to a U.S. survey commissioned by the
Defense Ministry, the Hungarian army has too many
colonels and lieutenant-colonels and too few non-
commissioned officers, MTI reported on 12 August,
citing the daily "Magyar Nemzet." The survey said that
under the current system, there is no guarantee that
promotion is based on performance or educational
achievement. MS

VOJVODINA'S HUNGARIANS TO SET UP PROVISIONAL COUNCIL. A
Provisional Council of Hungarians in Vojvodina will be
formed on 20 August, Hungarian media reported on 13
August. The council is to be set up on the basis of the
three-pronged autonomy concept drawn up by six of the
region's Hungarian organizations, according to Laszlo
Jozsa, deputy chairman of the Vojvodina Hungarian
Federation (VMSZ). It will have 54 members representing
the federal, republican, and provincial parliaments and
one-fifth of its members will be local council
representatives. The VMSZ has informed Hungarian Foreign
Minister Janos Martonyi of its intentions, but the
Hungarian cabinet has not responded to the announcement,
Jozsa said. MS
