After the conference, the Minister visited the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the seventh largest bourse in the world in terms of market capitalization, where he opened the trading day.
Quoting an OECD report published in November 2016, Mihály Varga pointed out that the wold economy has been in a low-growth trap, as persistently weak demand is having an adverse effect on the supply side. International experts are coming to share the opinion that government-initiated pro-growth measures may be the right key to this deadlock. Hungary introduced such measures already some years ago, the Minister noted. Thanks to our economic growth, social-political stability and supportive economic regulations, the confidence of investors has been visibly increasing in Hungary. We are committed to a well-functioning EU, so we are certain that even during the current changes several new investors would opt for Hungary as the location for company headquarters, he stated.
