OTP Bank chairman-CEO Sándor Csányi said the supercomputer and the cooperation agreement with the ministry to advance digital developments are "important milestones".

Innovation and Technology Minister László Palkovics said the public and private spheres need a "continuous and close cooperation" if Hungary is to reach its 2030 competitiveness goals.
