Signs Of Hungary’s Recovery Visible, Says British Ambassador
The British government sees the signs of Hungary’s economy recovering from crisis, a trend that is good news for both Hungarians and the companies wishing to invest here, UK Ambassador to Hungary Jonathan Knott told public radio.

As a sign of confidence, a British business centre will open in Budapest in March to familiarise British small and mediums-sized enterprises with the Hungarian market and offer British business opportunities to Hungarians, he said.

The ambassador said the two countries frequently discuss domestic policy issues, the EU’s situation and energy. Britain also sees a need for the use of nuclear energy, which it considers a safe, guaranteed and affordable source of energy.

The two countries have an identical opinion of the European energy grid, too. Knott said the British businesspeople he met all mentioned the need for transparency and predictability in Hungary.

Concerning disputes about immigration in Britain, Knott said the British cabinet promoted the employment of foreign workers but it would like to discourage benefit tourism.
