HIPA projects with positive investment decision up to 907 last year
The number of projects managed by the National Investment Agency (HIPA) with a positive investment decision reached 907 last year, almost nine times the 101 projects of the previous year, according to business daily Világgazdaság.
The reason for the significant expansion is that in addition to the 97 priority working capital investments, the organization also managed two COVID-specific support programs, to which a total of 810 companies successfully applied in 2020. The 907 projects will generate almost EUR 4.1 billion in investment, creating approximately 13,000 new jobs.
Business service centers, infocommunications investments and R&D investments with 25 projects and more than 3,000 new jobs were among the results seen last year in an unprecedentedly high proportion.
