Cases brought before the Budapest Arbitration Board (BBT), an out-of-court body responsible for the settlement of consumer and business disputes, were up 5.5% in the first half of the year, Hungarian business daily Napi Gazdaság reported today.
The BBT operates within the framework of the Budapest Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BKIK) but is an independent body.
The board closed 1,473 cases in the first half of the year, including 547 with an agreement and 313 with a recommendation. About 35% of the disputes were found groundless and turned away.
