Katalin Novák, state secretary at the human resources ministry, has presented the Hungarian government’s family policy measures at a summit of The Political Network for Values in Colombia.
Novák told MTI by phone on Saturday that she outlined positive policy outcomes and detailed the latest measures the government has taken with a focus on a seven-point programme unveiled by the prime minister in February.
“I said that we want to increase the room for manoeuvre for young people in Hungary, we want young people to have greater liberty to decide when to start a family, how many children to have, and, if they have ideas about this, have found a partner, and want a family, then to remove as many obstacles from their path,” she said.
The Political Network for Values defines itself as “a global platform and a resource for legislators and political representatives rooted in a Trans-Atlantic dialogue on shared values and aimed at collaborating as a network on a local and global level by actively defending and promoting a decalogue of shared values among which is the protection of human life, marriage, family or religious freedom and conscience”.
The summit was the third such one. It was preceded by summits in the United States and Europe.
