- Hungary Matters
Speaking to Hungarian reporters during a break in a European business summit, László Palkovics (pictured above on left) said that there were “still many who are unaware of the economic progress Hungary has made since 2010”.
Last year, a total of 98 major foreign companies decided to invest in building factories or research institutions or pursuing other forms of business in Hungary, the minister noted, saying this was a testament to the progress made by the economy.
Certain economic players, however, are still unaware that Hungary’s economy grew by nearly 5% last year or that the unemployment rate had fallen to 3.6% from above 10% nine years ago.
