Government to allocate HUF 60 bln to migrant crisis
The Hungarian government will amend this yearʼs budget to double the allocation for managing the migrant crisis to HUF 60 bln, an economy ministry official told journalists yesterday, according to state news agency MTI.
The amendment will raise the allocation for "extraordinary government expenditures" by HUF 60 bln to HUF 160 bln, deputy state secretary Richárd Adorján said.
An additional HUF 1 bln "emergency reserve" will be allocated to the interior ministryʼs budget, he added.
Cabinet chief János Lázár had already announced that the amount allocated for the migrant crisis would be doubled.
