PM Orbán: Hungary’s demographic problem will be solved through family policy, not through immigration and migrants

The prime minister said the Hungarian government stands by families and supports families in making the commitment to have and raise children

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that Hungary’s demographic problem will be solved through family policy, not through immigration and migrants.

The prime minister said the Hungarian government stands by families and supports families in making the commitment to have and raise children. He said the government is employing every kind of measure and shall continue to do so in the future to combat the issue.

He said that in Hungary today, people speak about the future in an anxious tone over fears as to whether there will be enough children in the country in the future.

PM Orbán said that there will be a general election on April 8th, and there will be a national government in Hungary for as long as the current government is in office. He added that if by chance others enter office, they will represent something else.

The prime minister expressed his trust that on April 8th and the following period, there will be a continuation of the cooperation that has been created between the national government and Hungary's small settlements and villages.

He confirmed that after the election the government will also launch the Modern Villages Program, the aim of which is to develop settlements in Hungary in which there are people who believe in their own future and who will therefore create plans for it.
