PR in Hungary
The Hungarian media landscape has undergone a radical switch after Fidesz, a right-wing national-conservative party, came into power taking control over all the national media entities and extending their influence over the private outlets. It contributed to the worse and worse position of Hungary in the global media freedom ranking and put an end to independent journalism in the country.
One of the key characteristics of the Hungarian business scene is its centralisation in Budapest, the country’s capital. It is open to international businesses and Hungarias are generally happy to work with foreigners despite the government’s nationalist propaganda.
In international business communication English is the universal language, however depending on the situation, help from an interpreter may be necessary.
