HBLF Hard Talk

          In the course of these discussions – that are not open to the press – recognised personalities give answers to questions that sometimes also touch upon delicate issues, and they voice their opinions about the economy and sustainability. The HBLF Hard Talk Series is organized according to the ‘Chatham House Rule’ excluding the media.
Our first guest in 2015 was Dr. Ádám Balog, Vice President of Central Bank of Hungary, followed by H.E. Colleen Bell, U.S Ambassador and György Nógrádi, Expert of Security and Defence Policy.
We welcomed before Iryna Ivaschenko, former Resident Representative of IMF in Hungary and Gábor Orbán, Minister of State for Taxation and Financial Policy Affairs. 
The Chatham House Rule is a core principle that governs the confidentiality of the source of information received at a meeting. The rule allows people to speak as individuals and to express views that may not be those of their organizations, and therefore, encourages free discussion. Speakers are free to voice their own opinions, without concern for their reputation or their official duties and affiliations.
