Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said the key to Hungary's future is that people have understood that it is through work that they can succeed in life.
In an interview published by Magyar Nemzet, the prime minister said all government measures introduced in the past 12 years have been aimed at making Hungarians develop trust and form a national consensus about the importance and fruitfulness of work. PM Orbán said that vaccination against the coronavirus was not yet an option last Christmas but vaccines were now accessible to all. He added that “vaccination can now give protection and also hope that instead of idly waiting for problems to pass, we can actively make a change in our own interest and in others’ interest”.
“Unfortunately, the number of people who refuse to get vaccinated is much higher than I had hoped for,” he said. “At the same time, it is a great success that more than three million people have taken their booster shots, which puts Hungary among the best in Europe,” he added. The situation was the same in the case of first and second shots, he said. Commenting on the situation in Europe, he said “Stamina and fresh energy can return from victory and this will apply in the case of Hungarians and also the Poles,” he said. “We must not give up the fight, even if we get tired.”
