Hungary became a Christian kingdom in A.D. 1000 and for many centuries served as a bulwark against Ottoman Turkish expansion in Europe. The kingdom eventually became part of the polyglot Austro-Hungarian Empire, which collapsed during World War I. The country fell under Communist rule following World War II. In 1956, a revolt and an announced withdrawal from the Warsaw Pact were met with a massive military intervention by Moscow. Under the leadership of Janos KADAR in 1968, Hungary began liberalizing its economy, introducing so-called "Goulash Communism." Hungary held its first multiparty elections in 1990 and initiated a free market economy. It joined NATO in 1999 and the EU in 2004. (from the CIA)


Economic Overview

Hungary has made the transition from a centrally planned to a market economy, with a per capita income nearly two-thirds that of the eu-25 average. the private sector accounts for more than 80% of gdp. foreign ownership of and investment in hungarian firms are widespread, with cumulative foreign direct investment totaling more than $60 billion since 1989. hungary issues investment-grade sovereign debt. international observers, however, have expressed concerns over hungary's fiscal and current account deficits. in 2007, hungary eliminated a trade deficit that had persisted for several years. inflation declined from 14% in 1998 to a low of 3.7% in 2006, but jumped to 7.8% in 2007. unemployment has persisted above 6%. hungary's labor force participation rate of 57% is one of the lowest in the organization for economic cooperation and development (oecd). germany is by far hungary's largest economic partner. policy challenges include cutting the public sector deficit to 4% of gdp by 2008, from about 6% in 2007. the government's austerity program of tax hikes and subsidy cuts has reduced hungary's large budget deficit, but the reforms have dampened domestic consumption, slowing gdp growth to about 2% in 2007. the government will need to pass additional reforms to ensure the long-term stability of public finances. the government plans to eventually lower its public sector deficit to below 3% of gdp to adopt the euro.
