Hungary/ 6.2 Public cultural expenditure  

6.2.3 Sector breakdown

Since a considerable part of the data on public expenditure are presented in aggregations that do not reveal division by sub-sector (e.g. performing arts, visual arts etc.), actual information for sector breakdown is not currently available.
