Gov't: Centralized PR office starts operations

Interview

A central communications office called the National Communication Office will carry out communications-related procurement for a wide spectrum of state institutions starting October 10.

The new office will take over the public procurement tasks related to marketing, public relations, research and communication activities from central budget-funded institutions, such as ministries, as well as from directly or indirectly majority state-owned companies, according to a decree published in the official gazette Magyar Közlöny yesterday.

The office will not be responsible for the PR of independently-run state administrative or institutions bodies such as the central bank or regulators. The decree said that the office will be funded by the National Economy Ministry, the National Development Ministry and the Prime Minister's Office. The National Communication Office will be run by János Lázár, the head of the Prime Minister's Office.
