Hungarian Companies’ Assessment Of EU Membership Improves
Budapest, May 23 (MTI) – More Hungarian companies say the country’s European Union membership is good for business a decade after the country’s EU accession, a survey by economic research company GKI showed.
About 49 percent of the 1,004 companies that responded to the representative survey of business in the manufacturing, construction, trade and business services sectors, said there were benefits to Hungary’s EU membership, up from 31 percent in a survey conducted in 2005, a year after the country’s accession.
The percentage of companies that said EU membership made no difference to their business rose to 45 percent from 33 percent a decade earlier. The percentage who deemed EU membership a disadvantage dropped to 6 percent from 36 percent.
