Despite the expected boost to imports as a result of more dynamic domestic demand, exports of vehicles and automobile components, consumer electronics and electrical goods, drugs, medical equipment and services (medical services, tourism, road transport) should continue to produce a comfortable, even though reduced, trade surplus. Despite the remittances from workers abroad and European grants for the agriculture sector, the income balance is likely to remain in deficit, thanks to the significant stock of foreign investments. The current account surplus is set to shrink. This surplus and the European structural funds proved to be extremely useful between 2012 and 2015 when net private capital flows were negative because of the worrying economic policies of the government. With this now settling down, foreign investors are likely to cautiously begin to return. Their favored sectors, such as automobiles, electronics, and pharmaceutics, are to a large extent outside of the government’s chosen areas of intervention. The telecoms, energy, banking and media sectors, however, remain subject to government pressure. The government has adopted measures (fiscal, price setting, etc.) targeted at large companies, mostly foreign owned, which are reducing their profitability and encouraging them to withdraw in favor of local Hungarian public, as well as private, companies.
