The National Economy Ministry today announced a number of proposed changes to staff, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.

National Economy Minister Mihály Varga is proposing replacing state secretary for the labour market and vocational training Sándor Czomba, who resigned with effect from September 30, with Péter Cseresnyés, a former mayor and now a member of Parliamentʼs economy committee.

Varga is recommending replacing Bela Glattfelder, secretary for economic regulation, with Istvan Lepsényi, an engineer who was earlier the top executive at Magyar Suzuki and Knorr-Bremse Fékrendszer.

Varga is proposing the replacement of state secretary for financial policy Gábor Orbán, who left his post at the end of July, with the lawyer and economist Agnes Hornung, who heads the Economic and Financial Unit at Permanent Representation of Hungary to the EU.

In the future state secretary András Tállai will be in charge of tax affairs as deputy minister and he will lead the new tax affairs state secretariat within the ministry.

The economy minister expressed his thanks for the work of the state secretaries who are leaving their posts.
