ATa giant loan from the European Union has to end Czech dependence on coal, oil and gas. Its new commissioner, Tomáš Hruda, is to have a significant say in how to possibly use the 350 billion crowns that the government is considering. Minister for European Affairs Mikuláš Bek (STAN) and Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS) appointed their former colleague from Masaryk University to an important post without a selection process. It is said that they were previously satisfied with the former head of the CzechInvest agency.

The new role is called the Commissioner for Strengthening Resilience and Modernizing the Economy. “Hruda has experience in managing a large project of Brno universities and the Academy of Sciences. He was the greatest in science and research,” Bek told HN. He recalled that Fiala, as the then Minister of Education, subsequently took Hruda to the ministry as a deputy. “We have a very good professional experience with him,” added Bek. He is said to have considered various “variants of how to fill the position”, but did not take advantage of the opportunity to call for a tender.
