German automaker BMW inaugurated a training center at the EUR 1 billion factory it is building in Debrecen (225 km east of Budapest) this week, according to origo.hu.
Speaking at the ceremony, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said the first 100 students who started their three-year studies in September, current and future employees of the BMW plant in Debrecen, will learn to use the most up-to-date technologies available.
"The government has provided HUF 25 bln to the university to expand the capacities of the technical engineering faculty, and to establish a new vehicle technology research institute," the minister said. "Also, they now work together with more than 12,000 students at the vocational training center," he added.
Szijjártó noted that the output of Hungary's automotive sector exceeded HUF 10 trillion last year and grew by 20% in January-August this year.
