According to American experts, the problems of the mortgage loan market in the USA will have no effect on the processes in Hungary, he added. To the question as to whether Hungary could utilize the acceleration of the global and European economy; Veres answered with a definite yes. The increase in the volume of Hungarian exports is above 10%; the slower GDP-growth is due to the declined state demand that was financed from loans earlier, he added. (MH)
