The Hungarian government aims to support young people and the "countless challenges” they face so that they can take advantage of the opportunities presented to them.

Deputy State Secretary Boglárka Illés said among the challenges faced by young people today, safety, the need for a safe future, security of livelihood, starting out in life, and starting a family are the most prominent.

Detailing the government support schemes geared towards youth, she noted the reimbursement of written driver license test and language proficiency exam fees, which 75,000 people have already been availed of.

Starting next year, some 140,000 secondary school students will get the chance to take part in two two-week foreign language courses abroad. She added that a number of other measures in the government’s family protection action plan have been designed to help young people starting out in life.
