More Foreign 'Guest Workers' Needed In Hungary
The high number and volume of investments in Hungary requires the involvement of foreign guest workers on a temporary basis given the tight local labour market, the state secretary for employment policy at the ministry of economic development said.

Sándor Czomba told an event greeting the twenty largest taxpayers in Komárom, in northern Hungary, that companies should however strive to support the Hungarian workforce where possible.

He said that the increasing number of investments would undoubtedly also require foreign workers, citing the example of Debrecen where some 30,000 positions will have to be filled.

“At the same time, we have a responsibility about who can enter [the country], from where and under what conditions,” he said.
