Reiterating National Economy Minister Mihály Varga’s earlier announcement, Orbán acknowledged that Hungary had just finished repaying a loan from the IMF and the EU that it took out at the height of the global economic and financial crisis, MTI reported. 

Orbán referred to the repayment of the loan as a remarkable success that required a great deal of effort on the part of the Hungarian people, economic policy leaders, employers and employees, he added, acknowledging the importance of “friends” such as the OECD, according to MTI.

According to reports, Gurría acknowledged Hungary’s successes in recent years and said the country should share its experiences with other states. He stressed that Hungary has worked together with the OECD for 20 years, MTI reported.
