K&H: More firms ready to invest
One third of Hungarian companies are optimistic regarding corporate growth index, especially investing in technology, according to K&H's investment index survey, which was released today. The index rose to 33% for Q2, from Q1's 31%, but it still indicates the majority of corporations do not expect to invest more in the coming 12 months.
Willingness to invest in Hungary is greatly affected by the location of the companies, K&H analysts said. The survey showed that corporations located in west Hungary are more willing to make further investment, and that their willingness grew from 37% in Q1 to 44% in Q2. However, the eastern region also saw a 7% increase in willingness to invest, growing to 39%. Meanwhile, corporations in the capital saw a dip in investment plans, to 26% as compared to the previously measured 28%, K&H said.
