Budapest, May 23 (MTI) – Dozens of dairy farmers started a demonstration with 50 cows in central Budapest on Monday demanding better market opportunities.
They gathered at Margaret Bridge near Parliament and will march to the prime minister’s office to hand over a petition to the government.
The protesters demand that the government should reduce the VAT to 5 percent not only on fresh milk, but all dairy produce next year, Imre Hegedus, a representative of the sector, told MTI.
This would eliminate VAT fraud which weakens dairy farmers’ position on the domestic market, he said.
A similar protest was held in Budapest early last month.
