THE MAIN objective of the new government should be to create suitable conditions for a resumption of economic growth and support the creation of new jobs, says the National Association of Employers (RÚZ). This goal requires changes in the Labour Code and gradual easing of the burden of social and health insurance contributions, which must be preceded by a far-reaching reform of funding for the social system, the SITA newswire reported.
RÚZ Secretary General Martin Hošták stressed the need to halt the growth of the general government deficit, a move that will require significant austerity measures in government spending, SITA wrote.
Employers said they expect the new government to pursue a responsible budgetary policy and fiscal consolidation, adding that the government will have to focus on solutions to the critical state of financing for the social system.
