Budapest, August 25 (MTI) – The ways of promoting civic consolidation in Hungary was the primary focus of the conference organised on Tuesday to evaluate the government’s performance over the last five years, government office chief Janos Lazar said.
Lazar also announced that Prime Minister Viktor Orban had convened a session of the national security cabinet by Tuesday evening to address the challenges of illegal migration, including a large wave of migrants expected to arrive at Hungary’s border with Serbia on Wednesday.
In the conference, he said, Orban gave a rundown of the government’s achievements over the past year and overall since coming to power in 2010 before outlining the tasks to be carried out by 2018.
Government officials will have the following year to act on the executive body’s goals, as 2017 and 2018 will be about preparing for the next election, Lazar said, citing the prime minister.
Lazar said Zoltan Csefalvay, head of the OECD’s permanent representation, presented the organisation’s most recent report on Hungary, which was then discussed in greater detail. The heads of the State Audit Office, the National Research, Development and Innovation Office, the Fiscal Council and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry then discussed measures for maintaining Hungary’s long-term economic growth. Lazar said presentations focused on further cuts in the public debt, promoting innovation and increasing the rate of employment.
Lazar said the government intends to make the conference an annual event taking place before the start of parliament’s autumn session.
