Digitization plays a key role in the dynamic development of domestic enterprises. This goal is supported by The Modern Enterprise Program, which aims to encourage SMEs to move toward digital development.
On February 25, a joint working group of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MKIK) and the Digital Welfare Program (DJP) was established to increase the digital development of Hungarian SMEs and develop Hungary’s data economy.
The leaders of the working group are Dr. László Parragh, President of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Dr. András Levente Gál, professional leader of the Digital Welfare Program.
The cooperation between DJP and MKIK seeks to encourage innovative solutions and digital activities by improving and developing the business environment of enterprises, thus helping them take advantage of the competitive advantage provided by digital developments.
The aim of the permanent working group is to establish a regular dialogue with all enterprises in Hungary, especially micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, which are of paramount importance to the national economy, and ensure that they can be the winners of digitalization, Dr. András Levente Gál emphasized at the inaugural meeting of the working group.
Increasing the competitiveness of Hungary and Hungarian micro, small and medium-sized enterprises is critical, and innovation has a key role to play in terms of their success. The joint working group will strive for the most efficient cooperation possible to coordinate synergies between individual companies and further strengthen open innovation.
According to Dr. László Parragh, in today’s digital world, there is a need for intense investment in human capital to create a foundation that will foster creative ideas in the future as well. In terms of the resources needed, we want to ensure that businesses can benefit as efficiently as possible from funds in 2021, he added.
