Today Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has outlined a ten point
action plan statement of intent for the future… “provided we get a mandate from the Hungarian voters to do these” Luckily they’ve got a fair chance for that. 🙂
- Further increasing the domestic proportion of Hungary’s public debt financing.
- Re-industrialization of Hungary to be continued. A bigger percentage of Hungary’s GDP must come from manufacturing than in the case of the Czech Republic or even Germany.
- Further reorientation in Hungary’s foreign relations. He mentioned Turkey and India as examples which countries Hungary should be more focused on.
- Changing the ownership distribution in Hungary’s banking sector so that at least 50% of the banking section should be Hungarian-owned.
- 80 percents of agricultural land shall be owned by small and middle-sized farmers.
- Creating new innovation centres, with university partnerships.
- Further decreasing tax on labour and shifting taxation on consumption even more.
- Economic policies must address Hungary’s demographic crisis and the whole economy must be viewed from this angle.
- New energy policy: non-profit energy distribution services. Both household energy bills and industrial energy bills shall be the cheapest in Europe and energy prices should be competitive with the ones in the USA.
- Full employment (when there is no cyclical or deficient-demand unemployment)
Ambitious goals indeed… But this guy means it and he’s been delivering on his promises.
