This year will be one of the most difficult and difficult in the history of the Czech Republic, said Fiala


He hopes that the first positive results will come before the end of the year. He warned against political populists who would promise simple solutions. As an opportunity to promote what the Czechia needs in life, Fiala sees the Czech Presidency of the European Union, when the country will see and hear more. Fiala said so in her New Year’s speech today.

He also commented on covid-19. “I have long believed that it is necessary to learn to live with a covid,” he said. Which, according to him, requires commitment from the government and citizens. “On behalf of the government, I can promise you that we will try to ensure that all necessary measures are as reasonable, proportionate and predictable as possible,” he said. He challenged people to treat each other the way they treat family and friends.

In the introduction to the speech, Fiala noted that he does not have much good news for the listeners. “This year will probably be one of the most difficult and difficult since the establishment of the independent Czech Republic,” he said. According to him, the Czechia will be bothered by problems that come from abroad, as well as problems that the republic has caused itself. “Mainly because the previous government paid little attention to our future and literally lived from day to day,” he said. He criticized the government of Andrej Babiš (ANO) for solving new energy sources or for indebtedness.

The three serious dangers that the Czechia will face this year were the rise in energy prices, covid-19 and inflation, which in a short time may endanger not only savings but also jobs and halt economic growth. According to him, solving problems will take a long time, but they cannot be postponed. Fiala will be happy when the first positive results of the government’s work show at the end of the year.

He also recalled the deficit budget prepared by the previous government. “These days, we are trying to cut it at least to a tolerable level to show that we are serious about dealing with inflation,” he said. He wants to look for savings where citizens do not feel it. According to him, the reduction will only benefit the redundant state.

He recalled the view of some economists that inflation could not be curbed until energy prices were controlled. But according to him, this also requires an international solution. “On the one hand, there is Russia, which is trying to blackmail Europe and even shows that it is ready for armed conflict, and on the other hand, we have major European states that have decided to invest in fossil fuel independence, almost at all costs, “said the prime minister.

He also warned against “political saviors and populists” who will offer simple solutions. “That you just have to reject something or come out from somewhere. It’s not true. Complex problems never have simple solutions,” he said. Fiala described the patient’s patient and hard work, the search for allies in Europe, progress in the construction of nuclear power units and the promotion of investment in sensible renewables as a way out of the energy crisis. He promised to help those affected by rising energy prices.

The Prime Minister described the Czech Presidency of the EU in the second half of the year as a significant chance. “In a few months we will hear more and see more and our opinion will carry more weight,” he said. He accused the previous government of not doing enough to prepare him.
