Thanking on behalf of all the members elected to the positions and bodies within HUNIG he outlined main directions of HUNIG's work during his term of office from 2018-2022, which can be put into three words – proactiveness, rejuvenation and openness.

Bringing experts together and encouraging their potentials

Bringing experts together and encouraging their creative potentials is one of the most important roles which HUNIG should embrace more strongly. Organising, but, also improving the quality of professional gatherings and lectures by contemporary, specific and practical topics, publishing, and continuation of digital transformation will be among the backbones of HUNIG's work. Furthermore, encouraging openness towards the public will contribute to raising public awareness of the significance of oil and gas industry and its benefits to the country’s entire economic development. HUNIG will nurture active cooperation with institutions, faculties, companies and related associations, and liaisons with similar European and global professional associations. Active participation in proposing and adopting oil and gas, and energy regulations was stressed as an important segment of work for the upcoming period. After prior approval by HUNIG Presidency, detailed work plan, along with the financial plan will be presented by the new President at the Assembly scheduled for December this year.
