Introductory remarks by Mrs Klára Antall, Founder
In the spring of 2009, the József Antall Building of the European Parliament in Brussels was inaugurated. It was at the conference organised on this occasion that I announced the establishment of the Antall József Knowledge Centre (AJKC). At that time, I did not anticipate that in five or six years we would achieve the kind of results you are going to read about on this website, neither did I foresee that we would inaugurate the bust of my husband in the building bearing his name and open the Knowledge Centre’s Brussels Office.
Special acknowledgement and thanks are due to the International Board of Senior Advisors, through which we can welcome prominent European politicians, my husband’s former colleagues and friends. I am deeply moved by the selfless work of the Knowledge Centre’s colleagues and hereby I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to them.
Mrs Klára Antall
