More and more 'waves' and external forces are testing the endurance and competitiveness of the states in the 21st century. In order to become relevant actor in the international dispute of the European Union, Hungary has to 'grow up' for challenges of pan-European politics, become active participant of the alliance, and has to overcome on the global financial crisis as well. In so doing, the country has to act as a role model of renewing state structure. Since I am a citizen of this
country, I feel special responsibility in this case as a prospective spatial planner. I would like to contribute in the state structure renewal with this study aiming for taking the initial steps in the development process of a flexible, transparent and effective planning structure. This organizational structure has to be a useful framework for competitive and innovative initiatives, be able to adsorb EU-funds and has to act as a solid ground for other planning-related activities, such as land-use management, environmental protection and nature conservation. I am convinced that this unique experiment might also serve with useful lessons to other Members States, which want to 'streamline' their spatial administrative systems in the EU-context.
