National development minister sees chance for new utility cuts
Interviewed by business weekly Figyelo, Miklos Sesztak said he saw a chance for a new round of utility cuts if the government can find a way to manage the programme more efficiently.
Sesztak did not offer details on the likely extent of the price cuts, noting that it would, in part, depend on the result of the infringement procedure the European Commission launched against Hungary over an earlier utility cuts scheme last year. The scope of the price cuts will also depend on how gas prices change, which is also an unknown at this point, the minister added.
On another subject, Sesztak said the government does not intend to close down Budapest's Deli railway station for the time being. He noted that the government is preparing to launch three major rail projects in the near future. These include the expansion of the Kelenfold station in Buda and the refurbishment of the Nyugati and Keleti train stations on the Pest side.
