Transcript of Hungary

By: Madison Moore
The main language in Hungary is Hungarian (Magyar).
The most popular food dish is goulash. Soup is almost always presented before lunch and dinner.
The main religion is Roman Catholicism being 37.2% of the population

Located in Eastern Europe, The Republic of Hungary is known for their National Resources. This includes bauxite, coal, natural gas, fertile soils, and their arable land. Hungary has a man made lake called Lake Balaton. Only sail boats are allowed on the lake, in order to keep it clean. Hungary is surrounded by Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia. The area of Hungary is 35,918 sq. mi. This is about the same size of Indiana.
Despite becoming a republic country in 1990, there is still a lot of socialism living in Hungary. Hungary was apart of the USSR until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. When this happened, Hungary rewrote their constitution, this allowing them to become a free country and have remained free since. The government decided to combine the two cities of Buda and Pest to make the capital known today as Budapest. A river divides the two halves down the center. Some of the other larger cities include Debrecen and Miskolc.
Barbara Palvin: A model born and raised in Budapest.
Harry Houdini: A magician who was born in Hungary
Bela Karolyi: An olympic gymnast coach
Russell Chun: Although he is not Hungarian, he has made a huge impact for the Hungarian Orphans
Ibolya Jordánné Lossó: the best hungarian mother (in my opinion of course)

Here is the Parliament house in Budapest. As you can see, it sits right on the river.
Important People from Hungary:
As you can see from the previous chart, Hungary's GDP is growing. From 2011 the GDP went from 1.4 to -1.7 in 2012. Then in 2013 it rose a little. Studies are continuing to show that it will continue growing a little bit at a time over the next couple of years.
Per Capita Income
Hungary is ranked number 46 with the value of 3.10% being their lowest and 22.6% being their highest number**
Average Income per Family
The last average was taken in 2000, using the USA Dollar worth from 1995. The average income per household was $3,216. In the early 90's Hungary's average income was below poverty line.
Corruption Scale
Hungary is ranked as #55 on the corruption scale. 0 being the most corrupted country and 100 being a perfectly clean country.
Main Industries and Products
construction materials
processed foods
textiles (There was a paper mill in Miskolc, Hungary)
chemicals (especially pharmaceuticals)
The Growth Rate for Industries is 1.3%**
**Information collected in 2009
**Information Collected in 2012
The main religion is Roman Catholic at 37.2% of the population. With Hungary being a democracy, religion does not affect the government.
Hofstede Report
When this number on the scale is high it shows that this country has an emotional need for rules**
This means there is a high preference for a loosely-knit social framework in which individuals are expected to take care of themselves and their immediate families only. **
The Arts
During this whole presentation you are listening to one of Hungary's famous folk songs. Although, they are not very popular among our generation, they are an important part of Hungary's history.
The main language spoken in Hungary is Hungarian (Magyar). Let's learn a few words now:
Szia « Hello
Hogy Vagy « How are you?
Madison vagyok « My name is Madison
Uncertainty Avoidance: 82
Being high on this scale shows that a country is driven by competitiveness and being the best of the best.**
Masculinity: 88
Individualism: 80
Being low on this skill means control is disliked and there is not a huge difference between power **
Power distance: 46
In societies with a pragmatic orientation, people believe that truth depends very much on situation, context and time. They show an ability to adapt traditions easily to changed conditions, a strong propensity to save and invest, thriftiness, and perseverance in achieving results.**
Pragmatism: 58
Societies with a low score in this dimension have a tendency to cynicism and pessimism.**
Indulgence: 31

With Hungary constantly changing, whether it is politically, economically, or just physically, one thing that has remained in tact is the fine arts. Although, many Hungarian artists fled Hungary through out the ages their art always found a way to represent their culture back home.
With Hungary being under so many different rulers throughout the ages, you can certainly find any type of Architecture. From the Romantic to Ottoman over to Gothic. Budapest is full of many different styles from many different rulers and ages.

Education System
In Hungary, after eighth grade you have a huge test to take. This test will indicate if you can get into High School or if you will go to a Vocational school. If you get into high school, then you start to focus on a major of your choice. You are then divided into your major with about 24 other students and this becomes your class. In high school here in the states, we go to the teacher. In Hungary, the teacher comes to you. The class I was placed in was English and Spanish majors. This meant that some of the core classes would be in the language they planned on studying.
Herman Ottó Gimnázium
This is where I attended school in Hungary. Herman Ottó is ranked one of the best High Schools in Hungary.
This is Hungary's literacy rate for youth and adult. As you can see, it continues to stay in the 99 percentile.
Current Issues
What I need to know to move my business to Hungary
Hungary is a very special culture. Starting with our generation and younger, many speak a little bit of English. Older generations were not taught English in school. Coming from America, you do want to be careful. When Russia took over Hungary during WWII, Hungary reached out to the USA for help. Needless to say, the USA did not respond. Many Hungarians still hold that accountable to us today. This being said, once you get to know the people, then you can break down the wall and become close. Hungary is very proud of their culture so do not be afraid to get involved.
Hungary would be a good place for cheaper labor. Materials should be an easy thing to receive if you are in or near a bigger city. If you are looking for a place close to the water than this is not the country for you. A big industry outside textiles and mills, is winery.
Cave baths are a very popular place to hang out. They are heated baths inside caves. The rivers are handmade but the caves are natural. This is one in Miskolc, but the largest one in Europe is located in Budapest
This is a snapshot of downtown Miskolc taken from the Tram stop.
