Economy

"The economy of Hungary has been steadily improving over the past few years. According to the World Bank, Hungary's GDP grew by 4.1% in 2019, making it one of the fastest growing economies in the European Union. The country's unemployment rate has also been steadily decreasing, dropping from 6.2% in 2018 to 4.7% in 2019. Inflation has also been kept in check, with the average inflation rate in 2019 being 2.7%.

The Hungarian government has implemented a number of reforms to help spur economic growth, including tax cuts, increased investment in infrastructure, and a focus on developing the country's digital economy. These reforms have helped to attract foreign investment, with foreign direct investment reaching a record high of $7.3 billion in 2019.

Overall, the economy of Hungary is in a strong position and is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. With the right policies in place, Hungary could become a major economic powerhouse in the European Union."
