BÉT to move to Bratislava?
Monday, April 11, 2005, 00:00
According to daily Napi Gazdaság, the Austrian owners of Budapest Stock Exchange (BÉT) do not support BÉT shares? introduction at BÉT, but would rather move BÉT to Bratislava, Slovakia. The ideas of the Austrian majority owners (Erste Bank, Raiffeisen Bank and Österreichische Kontrollbank) are not in full harmony with the concept of ?stock exchange to the stock exchange?. BÉT?s annual general assembly planned for April 26 was postponed for May, as coordination is still going on. Chairman-CEO of Erste Bank Andreas Treichl told the internet website portfolio.hu yesterday that all Eastern and Central European stock exchanges should merge including Vienna, Budapest, Prague, Bratislava, Warsaw and Zagreb.
