Hungary’s Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány pressed for an immediate agreement with industry heads and unions on government crisis management measures at a meeting of the National Interest Coordination Council (OÉT).
“Let us establish that we will not take any steps that could worsen the crisis or ones that could cut employment in the short term, and let us not manage the crisis with credit,” Gyurcsány said, outlining three of the four main elements of the government program. The fourth is a reduction in taxes and a cut in budget spending.
Gyurcsány said he would like to reach an agreement on the measures already on Friday. (MTI – Econews)
