Paks II: The Government Would Devote HUF 62 Million for a Labor Market Survey
The winner of the tender may contract with the Prime Minister’s Office for a period of 52 months.
Mfor.hu writes that the ministry, led by Gergely Gulyás, launched a public procurement procedure for the Paks II project for an investment-related workforce study. The contractor must carry out a comprehensive study assessing the amount of available domestic and foreign skilled labor and major domestic and foreign investments that could have a “labor drain” effect on Paks II investment.
The study should also cover good practices in recruitment and placement of personnel, used at European nuclear power plant constructions. For this purpose, the ministry allocates a net HUF 62.05 million. See mfor's article for more details.
The European Commission has approved the planned amendment of the government decree regulating the site preparation works related to Paks II project. It means that – after submission of the construction permit – the licensing process can start, which can be continued by earthworks at the beginning of next year as well – informed János Süli, Paks, Minister for Paks II Investment. He said the pandemic situation made it difficult, but not impossible, to continue the work on Paks II project.
It is close to the ninety billion forints that the Hungarian side has drawn from the Russian credit line for the Paks II investment. However, most of the money used has already been repaid by the Hungarian government, meaning that no interest will have to be paid.
János Süli, minister without portfolio, is also committed to make the most of the development opportunities offered by the investment for Kalocsa and its region, it was told during a forum, organized by Club of Entrepreneurs of Kalocsa.
Minister János Süli said at a corporate executive forum organized by the Joint Venture Association and its partners, that the new units will bring back the investment and generate profits.
As KaloHírek reports that domestic entrepreneurs can join more and more tasks in Paks II project. Minister János Süli said that the construction of the service buildings and the regional development also offer opportunities. Paks II Zrt. on June 30, 2020 will submit the most complex application ‒ the one on the construction licence ‒ to the National Atomic Energy Authority.
