Some 200,000 more women worked in Hungary in 2015 than in 2010 and the employment of women grew faster than the European Union average, Hungary’s National Economy Minister Mihály Varga said today, according to Hungarian online daily origo.hu.

The employment of women reached record levels since the change of the regime in Hungary, Varga said while speaking at a business forum, according to origo.hu. Varga noted that while the average increase of womenʼs employment in the EU was around 2%, Hungary saw an increase of 7.4% in the past five years, origo.hu reported. 

Varga added that the Hungarian government is committed to decreasing the difference between the sexes, particularly with regards to salaries and the number of women in leading positions, according to origo.hu.
