On February 9th, AmCham along with its Board, Members and Partners has successfully completed and sent the ‘Cooperation for a more competitive Hungary’ titled strategic working plan to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his cabinet.

Since AmCham’s 25th Anniversary, we have engaged in a regular and dynamic dialogue with the Hungarian Government aiming to achieve our vision that is to achieve a ten spot World Competitiveness ranking improvement in ten years for Hungary with CEE.

In accordance with this vision, AmCham launched its first “Policy Agenda” document in June 2015, highlighting the most important priorities for our advocacy work between 2015-2017. In Fall 2015, AmCham in cooperation with our strategic partner HIPA and with the support of EMMI and NHIT has organized two strategic conferences - “Business Meets Government Summit” and the “Competitive Education Conference 2015” - to discuss and develop a strategic working plan focusing on the most significant issues crucial for raising Hungary’s competitiveness.

The 19 points summary of recommendations and commitments with the title: “Cooperation for a more competitive Hungary” incorporates inputs from a wide range of stakeholders, from representatives of AmCham member companies to academic and government experts.

We are happy to announce that on 9th February the strategic working document of 19 points, along with its executive summary and the Policy Agenda 2015-2017 was sent to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, and to other relevant members of the Cabinet as well as to other key government partners.

This strategic working plan represents our commitments to move forward our economy and country.
