Investment database, investment in Hungary, finding investment-partners in Hungary
3K Consens Ltd is one of the first consulting firms which were established in order to serve Government and EU local regional development programmes in Hungary. Initially founded by experts of the University of Budapest’s Institute of Sociology, the company later incorporated experts from other fields such as economics, information technology, and planning management and implementation.
From the very beginning of Hungarian regional development activities (since 1994 and during the entire period of employment, economic and social transformation) the 3K Consens Office has provided its services to regions and smaller geographical areas in economic and employment crisis. Within the framework of this activity we have helped economic and public participants find solutions to manage the inevitable changes and to find new directions including: finding new markets; appropriate financial solutions; and methods to re-educate labour forces with outdated skills and professions.
Besides the above, we have also prepared research based analysis on the employment- unemployment situation; including medium-term statistical forecasts of labour supply and demand for several regions.
It is the company’s philosophy that cooperation, expertise and appropriate organisational structure are equally important preconditions for successful regional economic and employment development. Therefore, we have developed and delivered training programmes, helped set up new organisational structures and applied mediation and facilitation methods in order to enable governmental and local decision-makers and the local participants of the economy and public sector representatives to create and accomplish their own development strategies, programmes and projects.
Our company’s clients include the Ministry of Employment, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, several Regional Development Agencies, and many companies from different sectors.
Investment database: finding investment partners
During the last fifteen years, the Hungarian economy has gone through enormous changes. Thousands of local enterprises have become part of the international economy. More than forty major multinational companies have established sites in Hungary, and many Hungarian enterprises - those that have been able to accomplish the appropriate technological and quality requirements - have become their subcontractors.
Although many local municipal governments made efforts to welcome new enterprises through the building of industrial sites and parks, the development of suitable infrastructure and services and the elaboration of a system of advantages for small and medium sized companies, the situation improved disproportionately among the different regions.
The concept of the 3K Consens Office is that a complex, many-sided development is needed to reinforce the attractiveness of an area for investors. This has to include the following:
Skilled labour supply
Demand-driven professional and vocational education system
Flexible, technologically well-prepared networks of small and medium sized companies
Development-oriented, non bureaucratic administration
Attractive local and governmental subsidies, and complex support during the relocation process
Lively urban atmosphere including appropriate cultural, sport, shopping facilities etc
On this conceptual basis, 3K Consens Office as consultant has helped many local governments and newly located companies to create foreign and inland business connections and to develop and broaden their industrial, commercial service capacity by opening new markets for their products. Our company therefore has an established and wide network of relationships. We have also created a comprehensive investment database, which has been gradually enlarged to include more and more investment target areas.
Based on our database we offer you our services in order to match your company with appropriate business partners and/or a location according to your requested criteria.
