For candidate businesses
Targeted business development program
In order to improve the standard of living and underpin sustainable economic growth, the support of strong Hungarian businesses is a top priority for the Hungarian Government. The objective of the economic development program (GINOP 1.1.4-16), the Future Hungarian Multinationals which is executed by IFKA Public Benefit Nonprofit Ltd., is to promote the development of SME’s with high growth potential, and which produce innovative and exportable goods and services. International research shows that small and medium-sized businesses that satisfy the above criteria, but which make up only a small percentage of all businesses, are a key driving force of the economy.
