MTI-Hungary Today 2019.12.30.
Hungary’s economy is undergoing a dimensional shift which has clearly placed the country among the winners in a new era of the global economy, the foreign affairs and trade minister said on Saturday.
“The Hungarian economy has seen record investments this year thanks to the country’s consistently high-performing workforce, Europe’s lowest tax rates and a new support scheme,” Péter Szijjártó told MTI.
Over the first 11 months of the year, the economy benefitted from 1,540 billion forints’ (EUR 4.7bn) worth of investments, the minister said, noting that this was already more than the total value of last year’s investments. The average gross monthly wage linked to jobs created as a result of the government’s investment promotion scheme was 457,000 forints in the first 11 months of the year compared with last year’s 420,000 forints, he said.
