2017 budget could help bring back Hungarians living abroad

The government’s measures will help the younger generation find the opportunities they seek

Csaba Dömötör, parliamentary state secretary at the Cabinet Office of the Prime Minister, has revealed that the 2017 budget could help to bring back young Hungarians living abroad.

The state secretary said that young people’s needs include suitable jobs and owning their own homes, and that the government’s measures would also help them to find the opportunities they seek.

Dömötör pointed out that in 2017 tax rates will be lower, more money will be spent on education and housing, and families with children will receive special support.

He said that Hungary’s economy is “in good shape”, its growth rate will remain at around three percent, while state debt will continue to decrease. "This means that there will be a lighter financial burden on future generations," he said.
