The National Assembly is scheduled to debate the amendments proposed by the National Competitiveness Council with the aim of improving regulatory environment for businesses, Minister for National Economy Mihály Varga stated earlier today. Provided these recommendations are approved, the new regulations may enter into force as early as this summer, he said.

In the Council, options which may yield results in terms of competitiveness, as outlined by the World Bank’s Doing Business survey, even within a short period of time have been discussed. Several procedures may get simpler and cheaper, among them the building permits for investment projects and the establishment of businesses, Mihály Varga pointed out.
