This year’s summit revolved around the topic of digital innovation. Held in Paris from May 20-21, the conference was attended by leading politicians from all over the world.
As Szijjártó, the Hungarian delegate said, automation was the focal point of the discussions. According to him, Hungary is committed to introducing broad-reaching reforms to the educational system, ensuring that every pupil leaves school prepared and ready to integrate into the job market. Specialist knowledge is in high demand, and young people should be strongly encouraged to develop expert knowledge in order to secure a high-paying job and thereby a good standard of living, the Minister insisted.
Driving forces for FDI: Skilled workers and an exceptional taxation system
In general, Szijjártó regards reasonably priced wages, skilled workers and the exceptional taxation system as the driving factors behind foreign investment.
Expecting more trade deals to be agreed on in the next few years, Szijjártó emphasized the importance of providing already existing workers with ample opportunities to develop their skill sets further. Likewise, the young have to be taught to keep up-to-date with digital advances in order to stay abreast of the latest trends.
