As a result of an over Ft 6 billion investment, The Malom Center in Kecskemét has opened recently, hosting shops, entertainment, and recreational facilities on over 20,000 sqm, daily Magyar Hírlap reported. The Malom Center, during construction, created about 800 new jobs, 500 of which will be kept during operation. The investment, however, initiated a strong professional and political debate after NGOs had asked the ombudsman to investigate whether the approval process of the construction permit has been lawful, and it turned out that there have been several irregularities during the process. The report on the investigation, taking the far-progressed phase of the construction into consideration, proposed the prevention of such cases in the future, rather then focusing on this issue.
