Czomba to negotiate in Dunaferr deal
National Economy Minister Mihály Varga, who had been tasked with negotiating in a potential government buyout of ISD Dunaferr steelworks in Dunaújváros, announced yesterday that this position would be filled by Economy Ministry State Secretary for Employment Sándor Czomba.
Talks with Dunaferr owners began last week in advance of the company’s implementing 1,500 layoffs.
The suggested relief plan for Dunaferr jobs, i.e. a government takeover or “deprivatization” of the plant, got the official go-ahead late last week, with National Economy Minister Mihály Varga contacting ISD Dunaferr CEO Evgeny Tankhilevich to introduce his standing as lead negotiator and inform of the government’s intent to purchase.
