PHARMACEUTICALS: Local Referendum To Vote On Vaccine Factory – Citizens
of the town of Veresegyhaz (north of Budapest) are preparing for a local
referendum to block the construction of a vaccine factory just outside
the town. Local activists argue that the planned HUF 25 bln investment
by U.S. firm Becton Dickinson would use technologies that are hazardous
to the environment and human health. Local authorities are currently
verifying the citizens’ petition, the last step before a referendum may
be called.
