AmCham chairman Farkas Bársony described AmCham as a bridge between the Hungarian and U.S. investors and businesses, governments and people.

Recommendations made by AmCham to the government have helped improve the investment climate in Hungary, strengthened the countryʼs competitiveness – the key mission of the chamber –and streamlined taxes regime, he added.

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said the government had asked AmCham to share its advice and experience and had used its recommendations to make the local business environment more investor-friendly.

He noted that more than 1,700 U.S.-owned businesses operate in this country employ 105,000 Hungarians.
