Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said the outcome of the general election is partly a recognition of the government’s successful economic strategy that it has pursued over the past twelve years. The government plans to continue pursuing this strategy, he added. Minister Szijjártó was speaking at an event announcing the capacity expansion of Swiss Krono. The state is providing the firm support of HUF 350 million (EUR 930,000) for which the company has agreed to retain 150 employees. The government, he said, rejects austerity, and supports investment and job creation, while gradually reducing taxes on labour. Data indicates that 2021 was the most successful year in Hungarian economic history, with record economic growth and exports, and all-time-high investment and employment levels, the minister said. “Supporting families and job-creation will remain a top priority,” he said.
