HIPA Wins Best Strategic Investment Partner Europe 2022 Award
2022. 10. 28.
Leading London-based business outlet CFI.co has presented HIPA with the 2022 award for Best Strategic Investment Partner Europe. The prestigious recognition is greatly attributed to the record FDI volume of EUR 5.9 billion in 2021 as well as this year’s gigantic project announcements such as CATL’s EUR 7.3 bln battery plant or Mercedes-Benz’s EUR 1 bln development. As the judges’ report argued, the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency has been working with foreign investors to make full use of the country’s supportive business climate, competitive taxation environment and highly-skilled workforce.

This year HIPA received the Best Strategic Investment Partner Europe 2022 Award, and the judges’ report highlighted HIPA’s major achievements that justified the decision. Between 2014 and 2021, HIPA closed 1,822 deals worth nearly €30bn of FDI, which has created around 116,000 new jobs. The past year broke previous records, with FDI totalling €5.9bn across 422 projects and creating 13,883 new jobs. The success story continued in 2022 which witnessed the announcements of gigantic projects such as leading global battery manufacturer CATL’s EUR 7.3 billion investment or Mercedes-Benz’s EUR 1 bln development.
