The government’s National Consultation survey to start next week will focus on life after the pandemic and in addition to questions about the economy it will also cover the recently adopted anti-paedophile law, the prime minister’s chief of staff said on Thursday.
Gergely Gulyás told a regular press briefing that it had become clear in recent years that “we live in a difficult and dangerous period and the past half decade could be described as an era of pandemics and migration”.
Hungary must make preparations for this, he added.
Gulyás said that strengthening the economy, protecting jobs and supporting families remained the most important goals.
The National Consultation survey will include questions concerning plans to raise the minimum wage to 200,000 forints (EUR 570), provide tax rebates to families and extend a loan moratorium, Gulyás noted. In response to international disputes on the new anti-paedophile law, the cabinet decided at Wednesday’s meeting that the survey will also cover the law on protecting children, he said.
