Lega-President Matteo Salvini thinks that the measures of the Hungarian family policy are an incentive to have children.
Former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, president of the right-wing League (Lega) party, told Italy’s Radio 24 that Hungary’s family and youth policy is an example to follow.
Salvini said that Hungary’s effective family policy has the best record in Europe for increasing fertility, and its economic instruments have worked well. “Family allowances and tax credits are an incentive to have children, and for me Hungary is an example to follow,” he said.
The Hungarian government has taken a number of measures to ensure that there are no financial obstacles to starting a family: among others, the family tax benefit, the housing support for married couples (CSOK), the maternity benefit, car purchase support, construction of new daycare facilities, and the tax exemption for mothers of four.
