DK MEP pledges ‘strong, transparent, efficient’ state

The Democratic Coalition plans to have a strong state in place in Hungary which operates transparently and efficiently, an MEP of the opposition party said on Wednesday.

Addressing a conference of the party focusing on economic issues, Klara Dobrev, DK’s shadow prime minister, criticised the performance of the Orbán government over the past 12 years, saying that despite an economic growth, there had been “stagnation” in almost all sectors including education and health care. “A modern world is about an economic policy, knowledge-based economic development, education and a strong social sector focusing on people.”

Dobrev called wage increases an important measure in boosting Hungary’s productivity.

She pledged to present a clear timeline for introducing the common European currency which she said was key in restoring international confidence towards Hungary, as well as managing a transparent budget and pursuing a credible monetary policy.
