Hungary’s 2021 budget to contain $9.3bn anti-pandemic fund

Hungary’s 2021 budget will contain a nearly the trillion forint ($9.34bn) anti-pandemic fund, Finance Minister Mihaly Varga said in a video posted on Facebook, adding that he would submit the budget to parliament.

Like other governments, Hungary’s cabinet unrolled a massive economic stimulus package earlier this year to fight the fallout from the novel coronavirus pandemic. The government hopes that a projected 3-plus percent recession will turn around in 2021.
