Hungarian government authorisises foreign ministry to assess CETA text
Budapest (MTI) – The government has authorised Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó to assess the final text of the free trade deal between the European Union and Canada, a resolution published in Monday’s official gazette Magyar Közlöny shows.
According to the resolution, the government supports the pact’s preliminary text and has tasked the foreign minister with issuing an authorisation document for its finalisation.
Once the text is assessed, the foreign minister and Justice Minister László Trócsányi are to present to the government draft legislation on the enactment of CETA.
If the temporary implementation of certain clauses of CETA that fall under the EU’s joint exercise of powers require the amendment of Hungarian laws, Hungary will begin the necessary amendment procedures “in due time”, the resolution said.
