This country note from Going for Growth 2015 for Hungary identifies and assesses progress made on key reforms to boost long-term growth, improve competitiveness and productivity and create jobs.
Over the past decade, the growth potential of the Hungarian economy has declined substantially. Trend productivity has ceased to increase, and investment has fallen to historically low levels.
Significant labour market mismatches and insufficient mobility penalise employment and productivity. Mismatches have above all a skills dimension, with an excess of low-skilled workers and a possible lack of skilled workers in certain domains.
Hungary exited recession in 2013, but growth potential remains held back by weak investment, low employment among low-skilled workers and shortcomings in labour and product markets. These factors also weigh on social indicators.
Swift action is needed to stabilise the Hungarian economy and put growth on a sound footing for a durable recovery, according to the latest Economic Survey of Hungary. Strengthening the credibility and predictability of domestic policies and undertaking much-needed fiscal consolidation will be key.
