Hungary: next year’s budget is budget of families
At a press conference held in Budapest, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office described next year’s budget as a budget of families. Gergely Gulyás stressed that in the 2020 fiscal year grants to be provided for families will increase most.
Since 2010, the government has doubled the amount allocated for the purposes of supporting families; this change of rate is currently the highest in Europe.
Concerning the strategy, Mr Gulyás highlighted that Hungary has made it clear that Member States must be given ample freedom in their economic policies, and that the EU should clearly state that there is a dominant culture, and that is Christian culture. It is important that the EU protect persecuted Christian communities, and in this respect, too, Hungary seeks to lead the way by setting an example, he added.
