The reopened National Economic Council has the first meeting

Members of the government’s National Economic Council (NERV) have held their first meeting since reopening Wednesday in May. They agreed to meet every month from now on. At the conference, the national budget and energy crisis were the main topics.

Deloitte board member and chief economist David Marek told reporters that the possibility of a tax increase was discussed at the meeting as one way to increase the state budget. NERV also discussed austerity and housing issues planned by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

NERV was founded in 2009 as a group of experts seeking solutions to the impact of the 2008 financial crisis on the Czech Republic. After the collapse of the government at that time, NERV’s activities were suspended in August 2013. The government resumed NERV’s activities in May 2022 in response to the economic problems associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, rising energy prices, and the consequences of the Russian invasion. Ukraine, the parliament’s mission is to propose reforms of major public systems such as the pension system.
