3.11 Current debates and reforms
Developing the entrepreneurial skills of young people is an essential task of the education and training system. On the employment side, the government will complement this by supporting entrepreneurship. The current action plan [100/2021. (II.27.) Korm. rendelet a foglalkoztatást elősegítő szolgáltatásokról és támogatásokról] amended the law on becoming an entrepreneur. According to the new regulations, the support provided by the employment service consists of two elements:
- a service element, where a jobseeker registered for at least one month acquires the legal and financial skills and receives assistance in developing a business plan; and
- a capital support element.
One change from the previous period is the mandatory nature of the training component and its provision by the employment service.
