Minister of Finance and former Prime Minister of Slovakia Igor Matovich has since caused some commotion facebook deleted In it, he takes up the success of the Hungarian economy and contrasts it with Slovakia’s relatively modest results. In a post clearly intended to provoke his government party, OLANO’s highly reluctant coalition partner Matovich wrote:

“I want to congratulate the Hungarian Foreign Minister for working without going on strike.

Hungarians are advancing like rockets and we look like poor relatives next to them.
