The construction of the new Mercedes factory in Kecskemét is proceeding according to the original schedule, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade said, according to kormany.hu.

Péter Szijjártó said that with the investment of around HUF 400 billion, Mercedes will double its production capacity in Kecskemét, thus Hungary will play an even more prominent role in shaping the modern automotive industry.

The new Mercedes plant will be ready to start production by the end of next year, which will make a major contribution to boosting the performance and exports of the Hungarian economy, he said.

He added that a new car body production plant and a new assembly plant will also be set up, creating new jobs.

The minister stressed that the attractiveness of Kecskemét will continue to grow and Hungary will also improve its position in the global economy.
