European Commission Representation in Hungary
Lövőház St 35
On Tuesday, 19 November 2013, the European Commission Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry hosted a seminar in Hungary at the European Commission Representation in Budapest on the issue of late payment and the application of a new European directive to tackle the problem.
This directive is an important legal development for businesses, particularly SMEs, and public authorities in Hungary and across the EU. It puts in place strict time-lines and tough penalties for payment between businesses, and between businesses and public authorities.
The seminar provided participants with an opportunity to learn more about the problem of late payment and the new measures being put in place to address the issue.
It included presentations from: Mr. Tamás Szűcs, Head of the European Commission Representation in Hungary; Mr. László Turóczy, Deputy State Secretary, Ministry for National Economy; Ms. Idaira Robayna Alfonso, Legal Officer, European Commission, Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry; Mr. Peter Felfalusi, Managing Director, Intrum Justitia Hungary; Mr. Akos Nemes, Secretary, Hungarian Credit Management and Business Information Suppliers Association; Mr. Balázs Varsányi, Senior counsellor, Hungarian SOLVIT Centre (Ministry of Foreign Affairs); Mrs. Sára Holly, Enterprise Europe Network Regional Manager and Dr. Gábor Czepek, National Expert on late payment, Deputy State Secretary for Justice and Private Law Codification.
This campaign is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and is part of the European Commission’s ongoing commitment to promoting economic growth and European business.
