“In recent years, we have seen that the news of Hungarian family policy has come a long way. It has also arrived in London, which is not very far, but our challenges are common and our answers are not the same.”
The two sides exchanged views on common demographic challenges between the two countries.
Thus, Novak stated that family policy is the best investment in the future, which is much needed to overcome demographic difficulties, and is one of the government’s main objectives.
He noted that Hungary’s population has been declining since 1981, but the desire to have children has grown steadily over the past ten years and peaked several decades ago.
“Our goal is to have all the children designed by parents,” he said.
He added that another important goal of family policy is to make families with children live better lives, as those who have children currently suffer from economic deprivation compared to those without children, and this defect must be removed.
The Minister reported that although the number of births is declining in the UK, the population is increasing as a result of immigration, which is a common phenomenon across Europe.
Catalin Novak then detailed the main areas of Hungarian measures.
The meeting was attended, among others, by British Conservative MPs, Advisers to the Prime Minister and director of a think-tank called ResPublica. The latter praised the measure recently announced by the Hungarian government to exempt people under the age of 25 from paying personal income tax.
According to previous information, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Japanese ruling party was also interested in the results of the Hungarian family policy.
