The governor of the Central Bank of Hungary, András Simor, on February 24 offered to donate his salary to struggling economics students if it will help ease the tension with the government over central banker's salaries.
In a letter addressed to the Hungarian prime minister and published on the central bank's website, Simor writes that it is in Hungary's "vital interest" to take the steps necessary to secure "access to an international financial safety net ensuring security for Hungary".
