June 23, 2017

German aviation industry supplier Diehl Aircabin is expanding its existing capacities in Nyírbátor, NE Hungary with an investment of EUR 120 million (appr. HUF 37 billion). As in most such cases in the past couple of years, the Hungarian government is paying a proportion of the investment, on this occasion providing HUF 1.38 billion in funding.

According to Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó,
