Viktor Orban's government facilitated in vain employment in Hungary for Ukrainian, Serbian and Belarusian guest workers due to an abnormal shortage in labour last year. Foreign workers still do not come to Hungary on mass, at least certainly not into the construction trade, daily newspaper Világgazdaság (Word Economy) reports.
According to László Koji, chairman of the National Federation of Hungarian Building Contractors (ÉVOSZ), the reason for this is that " good, i.e. attractive country advertising is missing and the affected persons are hardly aware of the fact as yet that they are welcome here with open arms". In fact, they are needed very much because there is a rather big labour shortage in the sector.
