Katalin Novak: It is in Hungary’s primary interest to take care of British-Hungarian relations even after Brexit


As the last official program of his one-day visit to London, Katalin Novak, Vice-President of Fidesz, discussed in the London Parliament with Jacob Rees-Mogg, Cabinet Minister for Coordination of Parliamentary Activities in the British Government.

After the meeting, Catalin Novak told Hungarian media on Monday evening that the meeting with the British politician was also important because Hungary wanted to find opportunities for cooperation between the British Conservative Party and the two ruling parties Fidesz.

He stressed that there are several areas in which there is room for cooperation. These include, for example, family policy, which has a lot in common.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is a Conservative politician who believes in the importance of protecting traditional families and is therefore saddened by the increase in abortions in the UK, said the Minister for Families.

Katalin Novak said Res-Mogg has listened intently to how Hungary achieved a 41 percent reduction in the number of abortions in the past 10 years. The British politician welcomed the fact that the number of marriages in Hungary had doubled in the same period and that the fertility rate is now 27 percent higher than it was ten years ago.

Katalin Novak asserted that the process in Great Britain was exactly the opposite.

The Hungarian experience and its consequences in family politics are of concern to the British. Katalin Novak said Reese-Mogg, for example, praised the personal income tax break for mothers raising four or more children, and said there was a need for policy in the UK that supports childbearing through tax.

He added: The increase in the number of children and marriages in Hungary, and the decrease in the number of divorces and abortions did not affect the performance of the economy, and unemployment was lower than before, and the employment of women as well. more.

This is very interesting, the minister said, which is why the British side wants to study the Hungarian model in more detail.

Katalin Novak stated that it will be important to draw lessons from Brexit at the European level and study the causes as well as the consequences.

He added that he saw that European institutions did not reach the necessary conclusions from Brexit and that they would make the same mistakes, for example by dragging Poland or Hungary, ignoring national peculiarities.

The British nation is proud of its identity and traditions and does not want to give it up. “This is how we Hungarians are, this is the case with the Poles, and if we want to preserve this sovereignty, it is important that the European Union and its institutions be partners in this matter,” said Katalin Novak.

He added that in his view this was one of the lessons learned from Brexit and that it was not being understood at the EU level.

The minister said negotiations were underway between Hungary and Great Britain in order to do the least possible harm to Hungarian businesses and students in the wake of Brexit.

Katalin Novak emphasized that there are already difficulties, for example, student costs are rising, Hungarian businessmen and students do not have the same rights in Great Britain as they did during the period of British membership in the European Union.

He added that he also met with Hungarian students studying in Britain during the day to see what Hungary could do to help them.

If the opportunity for European students to gain competitive knowledge in British universities with a long history of providing high-quality education is lost, Europe’s global competitiveness will suffer over time, Catalin Novak said in a statement in London on Monday evening.
