PM Orbán: Hungary will go from strength-to-strength over the next five years

PM Orbán cited the latest jobless figures showing that Hungary is close to full employment, demonstrating that the country's growth was so far undeniable, and will continue

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that Hungary will continue to strengthen over the next five years.

The prime minister made the comments during a Hungarian Diaspora Council meeting where he stressed that "a mother country, if weak, is unable to pursue good diaspora politics. So it must strengthen and gain prestige, providing a basis for diaspora politics".

PM Orbán cited the latest jobless figures showing that Hungary is close to full employment, demonstrating that its growth was so far undeniable, and will continue.

The prime minister also said that accepting Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia as European Union member states would be in the interest of all Hungarians as well as being a pan-European interest.

Further resources are needed and the EU will not be able to renew itself without further enlargement, he added, according to MTI.

Hungary’s interest lies in having successful neighbors so that the entire region can strengthen. It is also a basic interest that every member of the V4 group should strengthen its position, he added.
