During the meeting, Ms. Pallai showed great interest in IACA’s programmes, particularly the unique Master in Anti-Corruption Studies (MACS). Discussions centered on possibilities of future cooperation and capacity building initiatives. In the course of the visit, Mr. Kreutner also took the opportunity to warmly thank the accompanying representative of the Permanent Mission of Hungary to the international Organizations in Vienna for a recent financial contribution of Hungary to the general budget of IACA.
