  • Act on Cultural Administration

After the introduction of multi-party democracy to Hungary I was invited to join the Ministry of Education and Culture where I worked on cultural legislation and sponsorship. Appointed to Director General in 1994 my task was to coordinate the working group on the new act on Community Culture and to represent the Ministry in Parliamentary panel discussions in the final phase. I was pleased that the act prepared got approved by the Hungarian Parliament on December 15, 1997.
