Chinese-owned automotive industry company S.E.G.A. Hungary inaugurated a production hall in Szirmabesenyo, in north-eastern Hungary, and announced a new R+D project on Thursday, in a ceremony attended by Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó.
S.E.G.A. Hungary will make starters and generators at the base near Miskolc.
In his address, Szijjártó said the state was supporting the 4.5 billion forint (EUR 12.4m) investment programme, which
would create 40 jobs for engineers as well as preserve the company’s 1,426 workplaces,
with a 1.3 billion forint grant.
Szijjártó said that the government’s eastern opening strategy had “clearly proved a success”, making
Hungary a primary target for Chinese investments in central Europe.
