Nrma welcomes government moves to clamp down on repeat drink drunks
Budapest city’s “tolerance” to drink more, with residents buying more and visiting bars harder and in more bars – is not helping, say Hungarian economists.
“More alcohol consumption is only a temporary problem, and it will soon be addressed in a different way,” said a note in the Hungarian National Bank’s daily journal in mid-March. The notes are meant to convey views더킹카지노 from other financial institutions on the ongoing economic crisis.
