Hungary - International cooperation

Hungary has been a member of the UN since 14 December 1955 and participates in ECE and all the non-regional specialized agencies except the IFAD; the nation became a member of the IBRD and IMF in 1982. Hungary became an associate member of the EU in 1994, a member of the OECD in 1996, and a NATO member in 1999. Hungary is also a member of the WTO and a signatory of the Law of the Sea. In 1997, Hungary was among the first Eastern European countries invited to begin negotiations on full membership in the EU; it was formally invited to join the body in 2002, and Hungary's accession (one of 10 new countries) was expected in 2004.
