Consumer protection is a main priority for the Hungarian government and it is welcome that it will be an important issue for the EU in future, a senior official of the justice ministry said in Brussels on Tuesday.

Nora Kupecki, deputy state secretary for consumer protection, attended a meeting of her EU member counterparts which was held to discuss current and future challenges concerning consumer protection.
