Country Report
The article provides a summary of the political, economic and business risk ratings for Hungary. Analysts expect that there are significant risks of more dramatic changes to Hungary's political scene coming from the pending breakup of the Socialist Party and the Free Democrats coalition in 2008. The country's political risk rating reportedly remains at 74.4. The National Bank of Hungary, however, implemented successive interest rate hikes in April and May 2008. The government also postponed its planned public share offerings of key assets until 2009.
