PM Orbán: Hungary must build a country that can sustain a healthy future

The prime minister asked students to jointly “build a Hungary” to which they can always return. The Hungarian people must fight for everything, for their own skilled workers, their own young people and their own future, he added

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has stressed that Hungary must build a country in which workers and work have prestige, and in which every young person can enter a valuable occupation or gain a useful qualification.

During the opening ceremony of the 11th “Star of the Profession” festival at the Hungexpo fair centre in Budapest, the prime minister said that Hungary’s goal is to build such a country.

“This is our goal, this is why we entered into an agreement with the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and this is why we are going to enter into another agreement with them for the coming four years,” he said.

The prime minister asked the students present at the event to jointly “build a Hungary” to which they can always return. The Hungarian people must fight for everything, for their own skilled workers, their own young people and their own future, he added.

He said Europe today has been “assembled” so that richer countries with more fortunate pasts are able to cream off other nations’ skilled young people. “Employers from other countries have their eyes on you, too,” he pointed out.

In his opinion there are two answers: on the one hand, pride in young Hungarians being able to hold their own anywhere in the world; and on the other hand, “building a Hungary where jobs, decent salaries, security and the possibility of owning a family home await young people”.

The prime minister said that sooner or later every country comes to resemble its young people, “and we Hungarians would like a competitive country, a country which successfully competes in any of the world’s arenas”. He added that raising young people who have marketable and competitive skills is in the national interest.
