Premier upbeat on economy

PM Ferenc Gyurcsány gave a very optimistic evaluation on the country?s current economic state when speaking in Parliament, a slightly more optimistic one than Economic Research Institute (GKI) did earlier this week, business daily Világgazdaság reported. The most conspicuous improvement is the expected 3.5 % inflation rate for 2005 and 2.5% for the next year, he said. He also said that he would go on unveiling details of the 100 steps program in the summer. Today he is speaking about the agricultural steps in Gyöngyös. Then he will present plans to reform the public administration, while in autumn the SMEs will be on agenda.
