A Word of Welcome

Our workshop was launched under this title two years ago, we collected the first two years' analyses on this CD. Our working group includes domestic, foreign and economic policy gurus as well as top professionals from throughout government and society.

We know that the challenge facing you today is not gaining access to information, but selecting key facts that are both reliable and up-to-date. It is our fervent wish to facilitate this endeavour. We regularly publish concise and objective analyses of issues which we believe to be important and timely for those interested in Hungary and in our region. Our analyses are aimed at the Hungarian and international professional public (e.g. analysts, decisionmakers and economic players as well as members of the printed and electronic media) both in Hungary and abroad.

All numbers are published bilingually, in Hungarian and English, and are made available to you by e-mail and at our website (www.budapestanalyses.hu). We certainly welcome your feedback. Please send your comments to: info@budapestanalyses.hu

Our new website, an important resource for our own contributors as well, serves twin purposes. First, it is a resource - updated twice weekly - for the latest key publications, documents and studies, painstakingly culled by our Internet search team from thousands of locations throughout the World Wide Web. As such, we believe it to be indispensable for policymakers, decisionmakers and anyone with a keen interest in world affairs. Second, it is a link library, which affords the user instant access to the most essential information at portals all over the world.

Your comments and recommendations are always welcome.
