PM: Preserving workplaces most important task of crisis management

  The most important crisis management task is guarding workplaces, Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány said during a visit to chemicals company BorsodChem on Thursday.

Gyurcsány met with workers at the plant two days after the BorsodChem’s management suspended plans to lay off 550 people. The company made the decision after reaching an agreement -- in principle -- with the government.

The new challenge will be to get development resources for investments that have already started at the company, Gyurcsány said. Gyurcsány noted that BorsodChem had signaled its problems early on, allowing quick action, unlike steel company DAM, which announced on Monday it would lay off 878 people and shut down its plant.
