Following a more expansionary fiscal policy, temporarily, is necessary for the economic recovery, but the government is not giving up on its fiscal goals, Varga said.

Economic playersʼ confidence must be maintained along with their willingness to make investments, he added.

Under the scheme, subsidies have been awarded supporting almost HUF 300 bln in investments at big companies.
