Hungary’s central location in Europe makes it an ideal place for investors seeking to expand into Central and Eastern Europe. The country is crossed by major trading routes and traffic arteries, making it possible to reach a market of more than 250 million people within a radius of around 1,000 kilometres. Economic and social stability in Hungary has increased year by year since its accession to the EU. Internationally recognised companies have therefore been investing for years in new production facilities, research and development, as well as in the service sector.
