A year earlier, 64% of Austrian-owned companies expected higher revenue.
The percentage of companies that expect to use more capacity fell to 43% from 50%.
About half of the companies expect headcount and CAPEX to remain unchanged next year.
Respondents to the survey said Hungary could become even more attractive to Austrian companies if the availability of labor improved, if workers were better trained and more productive and if quality awareness was heightened.
