Finance minister: Hungary’s economy among fastest growing in EU
Mihaly Varga attached a chart to his Facebook post showing that Hungary’s GDP figure was the third best in the EU. Only Slovenia and Portugal fared better than Hungary, with 8.3 percent and 6.9 percent, respectively. Hungary is followed by Spain with 6.3 percent and Cyprus with 6.1 percent and the lowest growth figures of 1.6 percent and 1.5 percent on the chart belong to Slovakia and Germany, respectively.
Varga also said that the crisis caused by the war makes economic outlooks increasingly unfavourable for the whole of Europe.
“The aim is to preserve the Hungarian economy’s stability and growth in a deteriorating environment,” he added.
