Why Hungary, Budapest?

An EU member since 2004, Hungary is in an ideal geographic location in Europe’s center for multiple industries.  Our country was ranked 1st by Site Selection magazine for Eastern Europe, with Budapest also the Top Metro area, for business project and investment activity.   Hungary’s large and rapidly growing industries include automotive, high technology (Bio/medical, IT services, and electronics), and a thriving entrepreneurial community. Budapest has assumed a special role as a major business hub, connecting the European Union and the markets of central-Eastern Europe and beyond.  Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is continually ranked highly in rankings of European cities for tourists and destinations abroad.  Budapest is safe, fun, and exciting.
