In a late night TV political magazine yesterday, Sándor Csányi, chairman and CEO of OTP Bank Rt, Hungary's flagship retail bank, said he would consider becoming Hungarys crisis manager in a purely technocratic government if he were to be asked. While denying to have either left or right political leanings, Csányi said he shared more in the economic policies of conservative side. Speaking of Hungarys economic troubles, Csányi said the most important task that lies before the government is to improve the country's competitiveness, cut taxes, reduce the oversized public administration and introduce radical healthcare reforms.
