The meeting was attended by the prime minister, his chief of staff and cabinet head, the finance and the innovation and technology ministers, the PM’s state secretary for EU affairs and the head of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as well as the CEOs of state oil and gas company MOL and energy group MVM, and the head of the Hungarian energy sector authority, among others, Bertalan Havasi said in a statement.
