UNICEF Global Services Center to open in Budapest
The Hungarian government and UNICEF signed an agreement to establish UNICEF’s Global Shared Services Center in Budapest, making it the hub of financial and human resource operations, according to a press release yesterday.
The agreement was signed in New York by István Mikola, Hungarian Minister of State for Security Policy Cooperation and International Cooperation, and UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake. The agreement is now awaiting ratification by the Hungarian National Assembly.
“Hungary is pleased that UNICEF selected Budapest to host its Global Shared Services Center. This decision responds to the agenda of the Hungarian Government to consolidate the country as a competitive, outstanding international service hub in the center of Europe. I trust and wish that UNICEF will make good use of operating the Global Shared Services Centre in the Hungarian capital to the primary benefit of the children of the world,” said Mikola.
