We are working to save Dunaferr, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán stated on his Facebook account on Wednesday.
The Dunai Vasmű (Dunaferr) is the largest metallurgical-engineering complex in the country and the largest employer in Dunaújváros, central western Hungary. In a video posted on his social media account, Orbán said on Wednesday that he had met with the team led by Fidesz MP Lajos Mészáros, who represents Dunaújváros in parliament.
For many long months, the team has been working to save Dunaferr, the prime minister said, recalling that Dunaferr has been destroyed by its former owners, company executives, and finally the Brussels sanctions.
Regrettably, we can hardly wait for any help from Brussels, from there we can only expect sanctions, nothing else,”
In Orbán’s words, at the Wednesday cabinet meeting, based on Mészáros’s proposal, they decided that in the next six months the government would pay the wages of Dunaferr’s workers. The total cost of that amounts to more than 16 billion forints (41,2 million euros), he added.
He also said that in the coming months they will work to ensure that after six months the ironworks, which is essential for Hungarian industry, will have a reliable and stable owner.
