Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met with top managers of German carmaker Audi in Munich on Thursday.

The Audi managers told Orbán a capacity expansion at the company's base in the Hungarian city of Győr was progressing well, said prime minister's spokesman Péter Szijjártó. They also praised the quality of the work of Hungarian contractors who are building about three-fourths of the capacity, he added.

Audi laid the cornerstone of a €900 million expansion in Győr in July. The expansion is to raise output at the base to 125,000 cars a year from 2013.

The managers informed Orbán about further development plans and the prime minister outlined measures the government has taken to make the investment environment more attractive in Hungary, Szijjártó said.

Orbán agreed with the Audi managers to establish a closer cooperation regarding Hungary's system of vocational education and adult education in the coming months.
