3 Hungary: a real business centre in the heart of Europe Land of welcome for foreign investors

4 Land of welcome for foreign investors Hungary: a real business centre in the heart of Europe Hungary offers countless advantages to foreign businesses, but among the most important is its strategic location: right in the heart of Europe. The country provides an ideal base for investors eyeing more distant markets or planning further expansion within central Europe or the European Union. As a result of EU accession on 1 May 2004, investors here find themselves within a single market of 455 million consumers and close to four countries poised to join the EU in the coming years enormous advantages for firms seeking new markets and new horizons. Since the beginning of the transition to democratic market economy at the end of the 1980s, Hungary has attracted a steady stream of foreign capital, well-balanced across the various sectors of the economy. The average capital influx of billion Euros per year over the past 15 years shows just how effective the Hungarian economy has been at integrating outside investment. A country of 10 million inhabitants, Hungary can currently boast of having attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of approximately 47 billion Euros to date. In the early 1990s, privatisation, conducted freely and in accordance with the rules of the market (a unique phenomenon in the region at that time), was the main incentive for foreign investment although even then investments in new industrial facilities were becoming increasingly frequent. Today, there are new incentives for foreign businesses and a new direction for incoming capital.

6 A new structure for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) While privatisation is still in progress in other central European countries, Hungary has begun travelling down a different road. To take one example, industry, which prior to the mid-90s had consisted mostly of simple manufacturing processes, has gradually been transformed by the introduction of advanced technologies and innovation into production of goods representing higher added value. Investment in the automotive sector as a proportion of total FDI, and the growth in the associated service sectors, have become especially important: regional service centres are being set up and R&D activities initiated at an ever-increasing rate. Today, not only have the largest multinational car manufacturers established production and assembly facilities in Hungary, their major international suppliers have also come and brought their subcontractors with them. Hungary is truly a land of welcome for foreign investors and a land of opportunity. These statements are justified by the fact that hundreds, if not thousands, of foreign companies have located here. And their numbers continue to increase. While in 1990 the number of 100% foreignowned companies was 231 and the number of companies with foreign participation only 5,462, today their numbers are respectively.

7 Investment opportunities in the priority sectors of the Hungarian economy The automotive industry: Major Hungarian Automotive Companies Automobile manufacturing has longstanding traditions in Hungary. Since the beginning of the 20th century, the country has been fertile ground for important innovations, many of which are still in use today. It s no accident that since the 90s several foreign car manufacturers (such as Audi and General Motors) have followed Suzuki s example and set up production facilities in Hungary. (The Japanese car maker began production here in 1992 and was followed in the mid-90s by several of its traditional suppliers.) Today, the number of second- and third-line Hungarian equipment manufacturers who meet stringent quality standards is continually on the rise. There are currently hundreds local suppliers in this industry. 1. Gyôr / Erbslöh, Audi, Rába, Lear 15. Mosonszolnok./.SAPU, BOS 2. Veszprém / Bakony Mûvek, Continental 16.

8 Electronics Information technology The electronics industry provides one of the best options for foreign businesses looking for investment opportunities in Hungary. In the past few years, foreign investors have shown a particularly keen interest in four areas within this sector. In information technology, communications and consumer electronics, rapid technological innovation continues to drive product development, broaden product lines and enhance performance for consumers. In telecommunications, foreign manufacturers of mobile devices and removable parts (namely Ericsson, Nokia and Siemens) have set up centres of excellence in Hungary, spurring innovation and new applications. The assembly of electronic components has played a decisive role in the development of information technology (SANMINA-SCI, Flextronics and Philips). Finally, a number of companies supplying auto electronics parts (such as Temic, Delphi and Bosch) have made serving the large car and bus manufacturers active in Hungary (Audi, Opel, Suzuki, Ikarus, NABI and Rába) their top priority. And there are more than a thousand Hungarian smalland medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to provide the large electronics manufacturers with their capacity and know-how. 1.

Rétság / TDK The growth rate in IT in Hungary is around 10%, far exceeding overall GDP growth. As with fixed-line telecommunications, outsourcing is playing an ever-increasing role, resulting in an appreciable increase in the volume of IT services. Its 8% share of GDP last year shows 20.

10 Biotechnology Traditionally strong, the life sciences in Hungary have garnered recognition around the world. Educational institutions at the secondary, tertiary or post-graduate levels train highly qualified specialists in everything from agronomy to molecular biology. The Hungarian pharmaceutical industry and related sciences of pharmacy, pharmacology and biotechnology are steeped in tradition there is, therefore, an exceptional concentration of researchers and professionals here in synthetic chemistry, an area fundamental for the development of biotech. In fact, about a dozen enterprises of various sizes have focused their entire activity on biotechnology. In the past few years these enterprises have acquired crucial expertise in biotechnological innovation and developed partnerships with national and international research centres. Hungary s competitiveness lies in its brainpower

CORRIDOR UA Helsinki corridors Railway Road Water-way Supplementary elements of TINA network Road Railway Possible supplementary elements of TEN Road Railway Currently, there are several hundred high-quality Hungarian and multinational logistical service providers available in Hungary. In terms of the development of this service there is a favourable competition on the market. The market of companies providing logistics for special products and complex logistical services is growing fast. The national network of logistical service centres was set up with bearing in mind easy accessibility of each centre. Hungary s EU accession is a key driving force behind the market changes, for as globalisation continues, customs regulations and authorisation procedures become ever more simplified. Hungary s role as a transit country will further grow as the new EU member state bordering four non-eu countries. During the last few years the creation of an industrial park network has been considered very important in Hungary. There is not one town in the country that does not have an industrial park in its neighbourhood within 30 kilometres at the minimum. Companies relocating to these parks can enjoy all the benefits ranging from production to delivery to the target location and a wide selection of services

12 Investors Testimonials Accor: Aware of the country s geographical advantages and economic potential, Accor began its Central European expansion in Hungary by acquiring Pannonia Hotels. In 2003, at the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Accor s coming to Hungary, they declared their development here a resounding success, adding that the projects currently underway in Hungary and the region would continue until the twenty hotels under the brand names Etap, Ibis, Mercure, Novotel and Sofitel were completed. Audi has had its strategic base for engine production in Hungary for 12 years. Gyôr was chosen from 180 possible locations due to the possibility of maximal utilisation of capital. The region has a good supply of skilled workers and high number of qualified graduates with excellent language skills, as well as developed infrastructure and good transport connections. Audi did not only safeguard its international competitiveness in the past 12 years, but also created a strategic base in Hungary, which is gaining increasing importance. Today we supply appr. 30 % of the engines for the VW group; we are the biggest exporters in Hungary and also one of the Hungarian companies with the largest sales revenue. To reach this result we rely on our highly qualified workforce constantly delivering an efficient, reliable and outstanding performance. AVIS chose Budapest due to its excellent service ethic, strong local financial and technical skills, language skills, quality of infrastructure and geographic proximity to Avis European operations. Finding highly qualified, multi-lingual employees near our core operations was a priority in making our efficiency program viable. Bosch located its pneumatic factory in Eger, because beside the favourable level of wages, the region has well trained employees and a strong tradition of the machinery industry. On top of that, the M3 motorway makes this attractive city conveniently accessible. Diageo is very pleased with its decision to locate its European Shared Service Centre in Budapest. "Significant cost savings have been achieved, and we are particularly happy with the additional benefits driven by enhanced processing efficiency - in many cases these benefits significantly outweigh the absolute cost savings." Duolog: The main reasons of our expansion to Hungary are the quality of labour force and the favourable costs. Besides the Hungarian business culture is very similar to the Irish." Getronics chose Budapest from several possible European cities, in countries such as Poland, Spain and Slovakia. "The eager and highly skilled workforce we found in Hungary played a significant role in our decision making. Budapest is also an excellent choice because we have a strong local operation on which we can build." Le Bélier: "We didn t come here to make the most of low wages. Hungary is interesting for us because of the qualified workforce and the industrial base that we found here. The country has a stable and highly developed economy including the banking system." Nief Plastic: "In 2000 our business as plastic moulding subcontractors led us to follow our clients who settled in the region. We chose Hungary as it provided the technical and economic conditions best suited to our needs. After five years we can only confirm it was the right choice; today we have two facilities with a total of 300 staff in Hungary." The Michelin Group was attracted by the high standards of the Hungarian rubber industry in addition to professional competence, international competitiveness and the country s open spirit
