Current state and outlooks of the Hungarian manufacturing industry looks pretty good. However there are several external barriers which set the production back.
Kopint-Tarki has published its latest economic forecast concerning the global and Hungarian economy.
Manufacturing companies see their current situation mixed, but very optimistic regarding the future.
GDP rose by 2.6% in the second quarter, a marked improvement compared to the (revised) rate of 1.1% registered in Q1. But apart from the fact that seasonally and working day adjusted GDP only grew by 1.8% year-on-year, the structure of growth is not without problems, either.
The second quarter saw the fall in investments by 20.3% year-on-year, which came as a negative surprise compared to the expected decrease of 9-10%.
The paper, prepared with the support of the International Visegrad Fund, discusses labor market developments and related policies in Hungary since the early 1990s.
Kopint-Tárki prepared a study for the Brazilian Embassy in Budapest on the Hungarian economy, including relevant country information and regulation on foreign trade.
