“We have tried to support the citizens that were affected by the COVID pandemic. In what regards the creative industry, because there is a large variety of forms of organizing activity, we are thinking of measures conceived for a wider range of addressing. We want to maintain, until June 1, 2020, all the support measures granted during the state of emergency, and from this date on, we will prolong them for those domains that continue to be affected by restrictions, among them the show entertainment industry,” Prime Minister Orban emphasized.
