The Foreign Investment Act in Hungary

The Foreign Investment Act in Hungary represents a set of laws, enabled in 1988, providing the main legal framework that guarantees foreign investors will benefit from the same treatment that Hungarian investors have. This act has been amended over the years with the aim of ensuring greater protection both for foreign and domestic investors.  The Foreign Investment Act in Hungary focuses on three directions:
  • - to create suitable grounds for international cooperation between Hungary and foreign investors coming in the country;
  • - to encourage the injection of foreign capital;
  • - to boost the country’s technological development.

The authority responsible with foreign investments in Hungary

The Investment and Trade Development Agency in Hungary was established in 1993 and its main objective was to help companies make major investments in Hungary. The responsibilities of this authority were transferred in 2011 to a smaller agency, the Hungarian Investment and Trade Development Agency (HITA). This new authority is operating under the Ministry of National Economy.
