The article focuses on the political, economic and business risks of Hungary. A public opinion poll has shown that the ruling Socialist party has actually gained in popularity over the past few months. Although the Hungarian government is in need of extra budget revenues, its plans to introduce a 10% tax on capital gains and interest income risks diminishing the country's appeal as an investment destination even further. Amid concern over global oil inventories, government officials in Hungary have confirmed that the country has enough oil in storage to last 99 days.
