BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary’s price caps to protect households from surging inflation will stay in place until their current expiry date and possibly beyond that if prices remain high, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told a news conference on Wednesday.

“The price caps measures have an expiry, they will stay in place until then definitely, and I would like to keep them as much as possible later as well, we are negotiating … we need to have talks with banks, MOL… food retailers,” Orban said.
