Ukraine and Hungary will open the new Velyka Palad - Nagyhodos crossing point on the Ukrainian-Hungarian border this year. The border crossing point is expected to be opened in mid-autumn, the State Automobile Road Service (Ukravtodor) announced.

The plan to build the border crossing point was announced in November last year.

According to Ukravtodor, the opening of a new crossing point on the Ukrainian-Hungarian border will improve communication between the two countries, which will, in turn, stimulate economic development and facilitate inflow of investment and creation of new jobs," Ukravtodor’s acting head Slawomir Nowak.

The issue of creating the Velyka Palad - Nagyhodos border crossing point was discussed at the government level for more than 10 years.
