Novak to set up demographic roundtable

President Katalin Novak announced on Friday the establishment of a demographic roundtable to smooth dialogue on demographic issues and their solutions.

“If we can’t at least spark in young people questions about whether they want children, we have no hope for a future for Hungary,” the president said at the gala dinner in Szekesfehervar, concluding her visit to Fejer County, in central Hungary.

“We must ask ourselves why raising a family isn’t attractive these days, and why those who are drawn to it end up with fewer children than they wanted,” she said.

“We must face the challenges we think are the most important rather than turn away from them, and we must think about solutions if we are to avoid a demographic Ice Age,” she said.
