BMW Group invests in Hungary - the “invisible factory” gains a physical form

The BMW Group is expanding its manufacturing network in Europe, in the framework of which it will open a new plant in Hungary, near Debrecen. Through the investment of EUR 1 billion, the new factory will have a capacity for of 150,000 vehicles a year, in the meantime creating more than 1,000 new jobs. Quite understandably, references so far have been made to the Bavarian company as an "invisible factory", since only last year the components and services it procured from Hungarian suppliers totalled more than EUR 1.4 billion. The cooperation, however, is now taken to a higher level.

Hungary: Foreign investment

Hungary maintains a high per capita stock of foreign direct investment (FDI) for Central and Eastern Europe. However, the 2009-2010 crisis has strongly affected FDI flows to Hungary and since then the volume of inward FDI flows has been lower (except for a peak in 2012). In 2016, divestments outpaced investments, resulting in a negative inflow of USD 5.3 billion (the fifth lowest inflow in the world, UNCTAD). This is notably due to the country’s stagnant competitiveness because of measures taken by the government against the banks, increases in taxation and the addition of "special taxes" imposed on foreign companies. FDI has picked up again in 2017 to reach EUR 4.5 billion (first three quarters of 2017), however countries that have traditionally been among the largest investors in Hungary, such as France, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Luxembourg divested more than they invested (Central Bank of Hungary).

It improves the quality of their lives and leads to broad social benefits to individuals and society.
