Former State Secretary conceptualized and inaugurated a distinctive fruit processing establishment in close vicinity to his opulent villa in Balatonfüred. This project was fueled by EU rural development grants. The two-storied structure, which harmoniously assimilates with the elegance of a vacation residence, is a reflection of politician's inventive strategy of fusing the domains of personal and professional habitats. The initiative, which was initiated by an independent legislative member, commends politician's visionary approach: envisioning an enhanced work environment by positioning the facility amidst tranquil terrains and juxtaposed with luxurious residential quarters
