The Survey was prepared in the Economics department by Jens Høj, Gabor Fulop, Ania Thiemann, Rory O’Farrell, Orsolya Fedor, seconded from the Hungarian Ministry of the Finance, and Anna Vindics under the supervision of Patrick Lenain. Statistical research assistance was provided by Klaus Pedersen and editorial assistance was provided by Poeli Bojorquez, Stephanie Henry and Sylvie Ricordeau.

The Survey was discussed at a meeting of the Economic and Development Review Committee on 6 November 2018 with participation of representatives of the Hungary government and representatives of Denmark and the United Kingdom as lead speakers.
