Hungary’s Residency Bond Program is “alive and well”

A sponsored article has appeared on ArabianBusiness.com promoting Hungary’s controversial Residency Bond Program, claiming that it is “alive and well.” The article noted Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s remarks on Hungarian State Radio on Friday that the government would not give in to demands from opposition party Jobbik to cancel the program.

Orbán commented on the issue “in response to rumours that the program might end on 8 November.” Although Orbán feels the Residency Bond Program is “worth reviewing,” he stated that there has not been a decision to cancel it yet.
