Finance Minister Mihály Varga on Monday announced a tender for HUF 7.3 billion in European Union and state grant money to support green economy capacity developments, state news wire MTI reports.
Companies may apply for grants of between HUF 20 million and HUF 400 mln to acquire new equipment, upgrade technology, or invest in infrastructure or real estate, Varga said.
