The Cork Chamber of Commerce has launched an initiative to develop business links between Ireland and Hungary.
Cork Chamber’s Euro Info Centre (EIC) and Malév Hungarian Airlines are hosting a seminar tomorrow called 'Doing Business in Hungary'.
It will take place tomorrow from 9.30am to 12.30pm at the Cork Chamber offices at Fitzgerald House, Summerhill, Cork.
“Cork’s direct link with Budapest through the Malév Hungarian Airline scheduled service has opened the door for Cork businesses to engage in this new and exciting market.
“Wednesday’s seminar is exactly the kind of boost that Cork businesses need to compete in this emerging international marketplace.
Cork’s business sector is full of world class quality products and services and it can only benefit from the contact with key overseas facilitators,” said Kevin Cullinane, Cork Airport’s Marketing Manager.
Guest speakers at tomorrow’s event will be Dr Gyorgy Bobok, Counsellor of Economic and Commercial Affairs at the Hungarian Embassy in Dublin, SP O’Mahony, Worldwide Director of Sales & Marketing at Malév Hungarian Airlines, Billy Newton of QEF Global, Brian Butler of the Irish Hungarian Business Association and James Kilbane, Chairman of Grafton Recruitment.
Since joining the EU in 2004, Hungary has become an increasingly attractive market for investment.
Its geographical location, low corporate tax rate and dynamic growth in exports are all positive factors in attracting foreign companies.
