The first cabinet meeting of the autumn has been held, chaired by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, his press chief said on Friday.
“Thanks to the government’s efforts”
The ministers at the meeting reviewed the work of the operative bodies set up to handle the state of emergency situations concerning energy supplies and the drought, Bertalan Havasi said in a statement. They also discussed current fiscal and economic issues, he added.
It was established at the meeting that Europe was facing an energy crisis as a result of EU sanctions against Russia but “thanks to the government’s efforts”, Hungary will not have an energy shortage, there is and there will be sufficient gas, electricity and heating materials, Havasi said.
“The government will make every effort to protect Hungarians from war inflation and protect the utility price caps scheme,” Havasi said.
