Video: Vestfrost To Spend HUF 4.4 Bn On Expansion In SE Hungary
Danish refrigerator manufacturer Vestfrost is investing 4.4 billion forints (EUR 13.6m) to expand its production and storage capacity in Csongrád, southeast Hungary, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told a press conference.

The investment, which is supported with a 1.05 billion forint government grant, will create 93 jobs, he said. Vestfrost exports 98% of its products, which makes it a significant factor in Hungary’s economic performance, he said.

Szijjártó praised Danish-Hungarian economic relations, saying that 150 Danish companies have invested over 230 billion forints in the country and employ over 15,000 people.

Trade between the two countries grew by 13% in 2017, he noted, with the volume over 1.3 billion euros. Modern technologies brought by those companies help Hungary to transition to a new economic era, Szijjártó said.
