Hungary managed to unblock about €2 billion ($2.2 billion) in European Union funds as Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government made further progress in the recovery of crucial financing, Report informs referring to Bloomberg.

The European Commission unlocked the latest tranche after Hungary met so-called thematic conditions relating to educational training and gender equality, Stefan de Keersmaecker, a spokesman for the EU’s executive arm, said by phone on Friday.

While the funds are part of the more than €30 billion the EU decided to withhold from Hungary more than a year ago, the conditions Budapest met were unrelated to concerns about the rule of law or corruption, which had been the main drivers behind the financing freeze.
