- Optimistic forecast for Hungary in IMF's World Economic Outlook
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects Hungarian economic growth toreach 2.7% in 2015, after 3.6% in 2014. This means that the IMF experts are more optimistic than the Hungarian government itself, which forecasts only a 2.5% growth this year. + more
- First anniversary of a British success story
Offering support and information about business opportunities in Hungary for British companies, mainly SMEs: this is the primary goal of the British Business Centre, which celebrated its first anniversary on 25 March 2015 at the Eiffel Palace in Budapest.
- The National Bank reduced the central bank's base rate to 1.80%, a new record low
The base rate cut was in line with the expectations of financial markets. At its policy meeting in March, the Monetary Council – the supreme decision-making body of the MNB – had already cut the rate by 15bp. The move was the first rate change since the central bank wound up an easing cycle last summer and the Council said that "cautious easing" could resume.
