He is right to

Hello everyone

I’d like to ask about the meaning of “He is right to emphasise” in the following context:

thisislondon.co.uk/standard/ … ossrail.do

He is right to emphasise the parlous state of the public finances and to prioritise putting them back on a firmer footing. However, one project which he backs unequivocally is Crossrail.

Does “He is right to emphasise” mean that it is correct that he emphasises, he is correct/right doing so?

Yes, that is exactly what it means.

Thank you very much, Cerberus.
