The Hungarian government is to send out its national consultation on the protection of families this week, it has been announced.

The topics will include questions on how best to support the initial phases of the lives of young married couples, further incentives for raising more children, and the issue of the employment of women raising children.

The postal service will start delivering the questionnaires to members of the public in the next few days, Katalin Novák, the Minister of State for Family and Youth Affairs at the Ministry of Human Capacities said.

The minister stressed that the Hungarian government does not want to solve Hungary’s population problem with migration as several European countries do, but by supporting Hungarian families raising children and young people starting families.

Minister Novák said the government wishes to adopt further measures which seek to promote the births and raising of children. Therefore as part of the latest national consultation they are seeking to learn people’s opinions to assist with their future decisions.

The minister added that asking the people in this form has proved to be a tested and well-established practice: Hungary is at the forefront in this effort because following the Hungarian model consultations have also been launched in the European Union.
