German carmaker Audi is investing HUF 1.5 billion in a training program for some 500 staff of the Audi Ahead shared competency center to help prepare them for the industry shift to electromobility, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said on Tuesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The government is supporting the program with HUF 750 million, Szijjártó said.
Audi Ahead provides services to members of the Volkswagen group.
Szijjártó acknowledged Audi's "significant contribution" to Hungary's economic success in recent years. Audi has plowed around HUF 4.5 trillion into its local business and has become one of the country's biggest exporters, he said. Audi Hungaria, which employs over 12,000 people, produced 1.6 million engines and 171,000 cars at its base in Győr last year, he added.
He said Audi was also doing much to promote an economic shift in Hungary, "from the 'Made in Hungary' period to the era of 'Invented in Hungary'".
