In addition to tax cuts and job creation, the government will provide a targeted two-and-a-half-year repayment moratorium to help troubled bank debtors.
He noted that one of the most significant and most effective Hungarian measures of the coronavirus crisis is unique in the world, as nowhere else have bank debtors in need received such a long-term safety net.
