Agnes Hornung, Secretary of State in charge of families at the Ministry of Culture and Innovation (KIM), highlighted the Budapest event:
Shared thinking about families and our response to it is not only an important issue in our personal lives, but also our political compass. The firm and clear doctrine of the bourgeois government is that Hungarian families are our treasures.
“If there is a family, then there is a Hungarian future,” emphasized the Secretary of State.
