2018. 10. 02.
Participated by government and business leaders, Business Meets Government conference featured discussions on the possible enhancement of the competitiveness of Hungary. This joint event of Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA) and the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) is going to result in the elaboration of a package of proposals and recommendations for the Government in the fields of investor's environment, labour market, digital economy and innovation.
The two organisations launched "Business Meets Government" summit with the aim to develop it into a tradition in 2015. Regular direct dialogue facilitates that the demands of the business sector be incorporated into the action plan of the government to a great extent. This would make the business environment in Hungary more attractive in turn.
President of AmCham, Dr Farkas Bársony highlighted the following in his keynote speech:
President of co-organiser HIPA, Róbert Ésik stressed the following:
By the cooperation of HIPA, 46 corporations chose to invest in Hungary in the first half of 2017. The achievements of Hungary are proven by several international surveys of high professional prestige. According to the report of IBM Global Location Trends of this year, Hungary is the seventh on the list of the most favoured investment destinations based on job creation by one million inhabitants. According to Site Selection, an American journal specialised on investment topics, Hungary is one of the 10 best investment target countries.
