Government publishes policy program

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš’ minority government presented its policy program on Monday including six priority areas for the Czech Republic: digitalisation, strategic investment, pension reform, a high profile within the EU, state reform and increased security.

Another aspect envisioned by the government is free train travel for students up to the age to 26 and seniors over the age of 65.

Details were reportedly sent to the parties in parliament; the government is looking for, but not expected to get, backing in a confidence vote on Wednesday.
