Economic Development Minister Márton Nagy on Tuesday met with Alfons Dintner, chairman of the board, and other executives of the local unit of German carmaker Audi at the company's headquarters in Győr, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The sides discussed the latest economic developments and their effects on Hungary, the situation of the domestic vehicle industry as well as global challenges in the sector, with special regard to the transition to electric vehicles. 

Nagy noted that the automobile industry, as well as battery manufacturing, are the driving force of the Hungarian economy and one of the key bases of dynamic economic growth and the expansion and preservation of jobs.

The minister also emphasized Audi's role in the economy, noting its participation in dual vocational training, its status as an employer of 12,000 workers in the country and a manufacturer generating revenue of close to EUR 8 bln. 

After the talks, Nagy visited the production site.
