Mr. Orbán underlined that he considers the reductions in household utility charges in Hungary a great achievement, which the Government of Hungary will protect. He said it is important for Member States to continue to decide on the energy prices applicable in their countries. Keeping household utility charges low is not only important for families, but it also gives a competitive advantage to European businesses.
