Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met Daniel Korioth, managing director of Roberth Bosch, for talks in Parliament on Wednesday, the prime minister’s press chief said.
Bosch is currently Hungary’s largest employer, with 15,000 Hungarians working for its plants in Budapest and other cities. It has invested a total 370 billion forints (EUR 1.2bn) in Hungary and has received 20 billion forints in subsidies from the Hungarian government.
It was agreed that Bosch sees a great potential in Hungary in terms of research, development, and engineering.
Economy Minister Mihály Varga and Korioth then signed a declaration of intent, under which Bosch will join the government’s supplier development programme.
Varga said after the signing ceremony that the government aimed to help Hungarian small and medium-sized companies meet the requirements of large companies.
The meeting was attended by Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade.
As we wrote before, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó met with the heads of German engineering giant Bosch at the company’s headquarters in Stuttgart on July.
