Finance Minister Péter Oszkó told officials from Hungary's customs authority VPOP that the government does not plan to downsize, restructure or integrate the organization next year, VPOP informed MTI.
Speaking of 2010 budget plans, Oszkó said that financing of VPOP will be modernized in order to increase the efficiency of the organization's operations. The finance minister said that VPOP's operations were very successful at a time of rising burdens, stricter laws and increasing activity in the black economy, deeming the organization's budget efficiency to be exemplary.
Despite this year's tight budget conditions, the customs authority will get the technical and budget resources necessary for its operations, Oszkó said. (MTI – Econews)
