Ministries fear Eurobureaucracy brain drain

Ministries and local authorities are concerned that they will not be able to compete with the EU to retain administrative staff.

Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Pál Csáky believes there is nothing that can be done to stop the European "brain drain".

"The state administration competes with the private sector, banking sector, foreign countries, and now the EU, which offers far higher salaries. We will find it very difficult to compete with them. The only defence we can have is to train more people," he told news agency TASR.
