Orbán: Government welcomes MOL-PKN Orlen deal
The talks touched on the two companies’ recent contract, under which MOL will purchase 417 petrol stations in Poland, and PKN Orlen 185 stations in Hungary and Slovakia. The deal will make MOL the third biggest player in Poland’s fuel retail trade and PKN Orlen the fourth biggest player on the Hungarian market, Bertalan Havasi said.
The Hungarian government welcomes MOL’s acquisition in Poland and that Polish investors have appeared in Hungary. The contract will boost the two countries’ traditionally good relations, V4 cooperation and economic development in central and eastern Europe, Havasi said, adding that Polish and Hungarian buyers would be the ultimate beneficiaries of the two companies’ fair competition.
