Retail Rebounds as Restrictions Ease
Retail sales in Hungary rose by an annual 9.9% in April, climbing for the first time since last summer as pandemic restrictions were eased, data released by the Central Statistical Office (KSH) show.

Non-essential shops re-opened early in April after Hungary inoculated one-quarter of its population against the coronavirus.

Adjusted for calendar year effects, retail sales rose by 10.6%.

Food sales increased by 3.3%, non-food sales jumped 21.3% and vehicle fuel sales — boosted by higher petrol prices — climbed 19.2%.
