Hungarian women with four children or more will be exempted for life from paying income tax, the prime minister has said, unveiling plans designed to boost the number of babies being born.
In a report, the BBC said the plan is a way of defending Hungary’s future without depending on immigration.
The right-wing nationalist particularly opposes immigration by Muslims.
Hungary’s population is falling by 32,000 a year. Women there have fewer children than the EU average.
As part of the measures, young couples will be offered interest-free loans of 27 thousand 400 pounds – to be cancelled once they have three children.
