Public workers to relieve day labourer shortage

Agriculture Minister István Nagy said in an interview with business daily Világgazdaság, published on Thursday, that he considers improving competitiveness a paramount issue in agriculture.

For that reason, the government plans to “channel” 50,000 public workers into the agrarian sector as permanent workers, he said.

He said irrigation was also among his priorities for doubling the capacity for greenhouse vegetable farming. Nagy also mentioned modernisation and developments.
