PM Orbán: Hungary is one of the three most dynamic economies in the EU

The Prime Minister said that while the outlook of Western European economies is “not that rosy”, Hungary stands a good chance to maintain a GDP growth rate two percentage points above the EU average.

During a plenary session of Parliament in the wake of the EP elections, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Hungarians have overwhelmingly voted for changes in Brussels.

“Hungarians who voted at Sunday’s European Parliament elections have spoken clearly and gave the government a strong mandate that they want changes in Brussels,” PM Orbán said.

PM Orbán said the voters have made it clear that they want to see a Brussels leadership that is interested in stopping rather than managing migration, a leadership that is committed to respecting individual nations and safeguarding Christian culture.

He added that the election result clearly proved that Hungary is both a European country and a European nation and that “Europe is our home as well”.

PM Orbán said since the last parliamentary elections a year ago the Hungarian economy has continued to grow considerably, with a record growth rate of 5.2 percent in the first quarter of 2019, making Hungary “one of the three most dynamic economies of the European Union”.

The Prime Minister said that while the outlook of Western European economies is “not that rosy”, Hungary stands a good chance to maintain a GDP growth rate two percentage points above the EU average.

About Hungary followed the action live on Sunday, and as we revealed on the night Fidesz won the election with 52.14 percent of the vote, handing the party 13 EP seats.
