Hungary is situated in Central Europe in the Carpathian Basin; it has borders with Slovakia to the north, Romania and the Ukraine to the east, Serbia and Croatia to the south, Slovenia to the southwest, and Austria to the west. It is a landlocked country with no access to the sea. Its biggest city is its capital – Budapest, its official language is Hungarian, and the local currency is the forint (HUF). It has a population of 10,000. This country was founded in the 9th century, and like many neighboring countries also underwent many political upheavals over the centuries, including a period as an important element of the Austro-Hungarian Empire that existed until the end of World War I. With the conclusion of World War II, it had a tough Communist regime under the direct influence of the Soviet Union that collapsed in 1989.
Hungary is a member of NATO, the OECD, and the EU, but is not part of the eurozone and maintains the forint as its local currency. Establishing a company in this country provides access to the growing local economy, as well as various markets in Central and Eastern Europe.For Viewing Hungary in Google Maps - Click Here
During the ‘90s Hungary began a series of reforms to establish a free-market economy, increase openness, and market competition. As stated, Hungary is a member of the EU, a fact that boosts local markets and enables further growth and development – an important consideration when deciding to establish a foreign company there. Its private sector contributes to over 80% of GDP, but foreign companies and investors are very common in the Hungarian business scene. Although Hungary has a developed and growing economy, it is still relatively traditional-industry based as compared to other European economies. Its main industries are mining, metallurgy, construction materials, processed foods, chemicals (pharmaceuticals), and textile. The 2008 economic crisis significantly impacted Hungary, but recent years have shown encouraging signs of weathering the storm. The financial sector is developing rapidly, and the government is actively establishing the necessary conditions to facilitate foreign company incorporation.
