Record Turnover in Hungarian construction industry with Problems to be Resolved
Over the last two years, the Hungarian construction industry provided an outstanding performance with the sector’s output showing an overall increase of 56 percent – said Minister of State for Economic Strategy and Regulation László György of the Ministry for Innovation and Technology (ITM), adding that for the period between 2018 and 2023, the construction industry’s stock of orders amount to HUF 25 thousand billion. In order to ensure the steady level of results, the State Secretariat prepared a construction economy strategy with the involvement of professional organisations – the National Federation of Hungarian Building Contractors (ÉVOSZ) and the National Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers – which the government is set to discuss in the month of April, added the State Secretary. One of the key elements of the strategy is the tender for the technological modernization of the construction industry, through which the government provided grants of HUF 16 billion for expanding the capacities of small and mid-size enterprises. The call for bids is anticipated to continue through the month of April with an additional allocation of HUF 6 billion, added the State Secretary.
The forum taking place on the opening day of the exhibition, encompassing the entire construction industry, was hosted by ÉVOSZ, the Ministry for Innovation and Technology and the Budapest Chamber of Commerce and Industry. At the conference entitled Opportunities of the Construction Economy, President of ÉVOSZ László Koji explained, amongst other things, that over a ten-year period, 150 thousand fewer new apartments were built than necessary and this shortcoming has to be rectified over the next 15 years while the construction industry also accommodates the newly arising needs. The greatest challenge is the lack of professionals and capacities compared to the number of orders. This was also confirmed by President of the Industrial Department of the Budapest Chamber of Commerce and Industry Zsolt Zsabka, who explained that currently, the greatest issue is not so much the quality, but rather the actual completion of the works. All in attendance agreed that over the next one to two years, the construction industry will show a growth of around 15 percent, in which the ratio of the currently dominant state, as well as industrial and private orders may change over time.
