Hungary's prime minister Viktor Orban has unveiled a plan hatched together with Budapest mayor Istvan Tarlos to set up a committee that will be in charge of handling some of the city's most important investments. In announcing the move, according to The Budapest Business Journal, Orban claimed it was one of the 'strict conditions' the mayor had set in order to agree to running to a third term of office in next year's elections. He said that an agreement on 'tens' of billions of Hungarian forints for the renovation of the M3 metro line had been reached, while reconstruction work will be carried out on the Varosliget skating rink, the National Riding Hall and the Buda Vigado, the Dagaly swimming complex and the Liszt Academy of Music were all part of the deal. “We all have a vested interest in Budapest regaining its old glory. The government itself is convinced that Hungary can only be a serious country if its capital, too, undertakes serious endeavours,” Orbán said, according to BBJ.
