Viktor Orbán drew attention to the work-based economy and the experience gained in protecting jobs.
Luca Visentini has recently expressed her concern in an open letter about measures that the Hungarian government would take to mitigate the expected economic damage caused by the coronavirus epidemic.
In his reply, Viktor Orbán wrote: “It is a rare honor for the Hungarian Prime Minister to receive a letter from you. The economic troubles caused by the current coronavirus epidemic justify your special gesture. I am pleased to see that it is following the efforts of the Hungarian government and the Hungarian people to defeat the coronavirus. ”
The prime minister called it encouraging that trade unions could be counted on in such a difficult situation. He assured the Secretary-General that “our convictions, intentions and goals still coincide”.
Viktor Orbán reminded Luca Visentini that in the last ten years, a labor-based economy has been built in Hungary – perhaps the only one in Europe. “As you probably know, this has forced unemployment to its knees, which was well over ten per cent in the period before our rule. This means that the Hungarian government, in its current crisis management measures, can confidently rely on the experience of its policy developed during the 2009 crisis, ”he continued.
The Prime Minister noted that they had been ready to share the Hungarian experience with those interested in the last ten years as well.
He noted that preserving jobs and creating new ones is at the heart of his government’s crisis management program.
“I can assure you, we will create as many jobs as the coronavirus will destroy.
Thank you for your sympathy, solidarity and encouragement on behalf of the Hungarian people! – concluded Viktor Orbán's letter to the Secretary General of the European Trade Union Confederation.
