Country Report
The article presents a risk summary for Hungary, as of December 2006. Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany, who looks to be holding firm to his premiership, appears to have solid backing from his coalition government. The external macroeconomic environment in the country is as important as the trajectory of domestic demand for the economy. An estimate of nearly 95 percent of non-financial enterprises in the country employ less that 10 people.
