According to Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, international companies are important, but the soul of the Hungarian economy comes from Hungarian-owned companies.
Szijjártó talked about Hungary’s economic outlook and new investments at a ceremony for the founding of a new logistics center for BHS Trans Kft. in Debrecen.
BHS Trans Kft. will build logistics centers in four settlements in Hungary this year, a total investment worth HUF 7.6 billion that will create 165 new jobs. The government will support the investment with a non-refundable subsidy of HUF 3.4 billion, the minister indicated. The logistics center established in Debrecen will feature almost 25,000 square meters.
The FM drew attention to the fact that the Hungarian government supports job creation and investment in contrast to an aid-based economy. The recently accepted Debrecen 2030 project will bring serious developments in infrastructure, education, and culture.
Szijjártó also emphasized that the goal now is to make Hungarian companies stronger than they were before the coronavirus.
