HIPA has facilitated a record 47 foreign investments that created 8,502 jobs in the country in January-June, compared with 71 during the full year of 2016, Péter Szijjártó told a press conference.
The volume of foreign investments during the first half of 2017 totalled 1.3 billion euros, up 3 percent on the same period last year, he said. Behind this result is the government’s successful new foreign policy strategy to focus on enforcing Hungary’s economic interests, he added.
