This means that, on average, government decisions that do not contain confidential information were made every day, yet the public is unaware of their existence, does not know what they are about, who they affect nor what they might cost the state.
Details of these decisions are not published in the Hungarian Gazette, but there is no reason to encrypt them either; it is merely not mandatory to publish them.
They are typically decisions assigning tasks. Last year, 470 such decisions were made, and the year before last, 679.
Szabad Európa recently learned that such a non-public decision was made at the so-called "strategic" government meeting held in Sopron on February 6.
There it was decided that the costs of one of the largest railway developments carried out by Lőrinc Mészáros could be increased by Ft 17 billion.
