[box] Budapest, August 1 (MTI) – The Jobbik party is putting together a package of measures aimed at helping Hungarian companies and promoting youth employment in the process, the party’s deputy leader said on Monday.[/box]
Jobbik also hopes the measures can prevent multinationals from moving their profits abroad and Hungarians leaving to work abroad, Dániel Z Kárpát told a press conference.
The party wants to cure Hungary’s labour shortages by increasing employment among Hungarians instead of bringing in foreign workers from outside of the European Union, he said. A home building scheme would also be included in Jobbik’s programme.
Z Kárpát proposed that companies in innovative sectors, tourism and agriculture should receive tax benefits.
He said it was “unbelievable” that multinational companies “still haven’t been made to take on their fair share” of the public burden and are able to move “thousands of billions” in profits abroad. He said Hungarian SMEs should be favoured over multinationals in terms of the government support they receive.
