Hungarian government allocates HUF 600 mln for ‘info’ campaign
The Hungarian government is planning to launch an "information" campaign, which is intended "to make it clear that Hungarian reforms are working well" and that "the country has benefited from having chosen its own path" by rejecting "austerity measures proposed by international organizations", government spokesperson Zoltán Kovács was cited saying by Hungarian news agency MTI today.
It was reported that the campaign is scheduled to start in a few days and would run until the end of September. Kovács reportedly said that the Hungarian government allocated some HUF 600 mln forints for the campaign.
Kovács noted that “it was clear from the past few years” that the “path” Hungary has chosen has lead to the “Hungarian economyʼs growth of more than 10% since 2010”.
Commenting on a counter-campaign by the Hungarian Two-tailed Dog Party, Kovács reportedly dismissed the suggestion that the ruling partyʼs current “information” campaign was in response to the tongue-in-cheek counter-campaign.
