ABSTRACT
The article provides a summary of economic, political and business environment risks for Hungary in 2008. Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany appears to be pushing forward on his fiscal reform agenda. The country's short-term economic risk rating has declined 3.5 percent points on account of downward revisions to its economic growth outlook and spiralling inflation. The Ministry of Energy has proposed the privatisation of the country's state-owned long-distance coach companies.
