Budapest, June 14 (MTI) – József Tóbiás, the head of the Socialist Party, on Tuesday met ambassadors and diplomats of over thirty countries to discuss Hungary’s economy and related policies.
A look at Hungary’s economy will reveal that it is falling behind its Visegrad Four allies and the most competitive European Union member states, Tóbiás told a press conference after his talks.
“The government’s unorthodox economic policy, which is actually a continuation of the neoliberal economic policies of the past 25 years, has failed,” he said.
Tóbiás said the economy’s reserves, which he said were made up solely of EU funds, were depleted. Without EU money, Hungary’s economy would be in trouble, he said, adding that the state of the economy had led to cuts in health-care, education and social spending.
He said the talks also touched on the issues of corruption and security.
Tóbiás also outlined his party’s future programmes with which he said it would seek “more than a change of government” in 2018.
