György said the government has no plans to extend the scheme which was launched in April. So far, the government has awarded wage support for more than 226,000 work places.
György said the number of registered job-seekers has fallen for the tenth week in a row, declining by 2,456 most recently.
He said a white paper prepared by business chambers and professional associations would be published next Monday on measures companies can take to ensure their continued operation in the case of a second wave of COVID-19 infections.
