Economy

  • Hungary has made a successful shift to a market economy after the first multi-party elections were held in 1990. Before the fall of the Communist regime in 1989, its economy was centrally planned.
  • Since 1990, foreign ownership and foreign investment have become commonplace, and Hungary receives about a third of the foreign investment flowing into the Central European area.
  • Production in Hungary has shifted from lower-value textiles and food products to higher-value sectors such as luxury vehicle production, renewable energy, tourism, and information technology. Over 60% of Hungary’s exports are related to machinery and equipment.
  • In recent years, Hungary has required financial assistance from world bodies such as the IMF and World Bank to service its large public debt. As one consequence, Hungary has delayed adopting the euro until 2020.

History

  • The name Forint has its origin in coins minted in Florence in 1252, called Fiorino d’oro.
  • Forint banknotes and fillér coins were introduced and circulated in August 1946, as a crucial step in the stabilization of the country after World War II.
  • Inflation (especially during the late 1980s) made fillér coins irrelevant, and they were removed from circulation in 1996. Coins continue to be minted in Forint denominations.
  • The Forint became fully convertible in 2001 after the high inflation of the 1990s when Hungary transitioned to a market economy.

  • Most large government-owned banks and industrial firms have been privatized.
  • Real growth in GDP has averaged about 8% during the past three decades. Exports have grown even faster and, since World War II, have provided the primary impetus for industrialization.
  • Taiwanese investors and businesses have become major investors in mainland China, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

History

  • The New Taiwan Dollar was first issued by the Bank of Taiwan on June 15, 1949 to replace the Old Taiwan Dollar at the rate of 40,000 old Dollars = 1 new Dollar.
  • The main aim of the New Taiwan Dollar was to end the hyperinflation that had plagued Taiwan and mainland China due to the Chinese civil war fought in mainland China.
  • Taiwan has transformed itself from a recipient of U.S. aid in the 1950s and early 1960s to an aid donor and major foreign investor. Private Taiwanese investment in mainland China is estimated to be in excess of 150 billion USD, and official sources cite Taiwan as having invested a comparable amount in Southeast Asia.
  • In July, 2000 the New Taiwan Dollar became the official currency of the ROC and is no longer secondary to the silver Yuan. At the same time, the Central Bank of China (now known as the Central Bank of the Republic of China) began issuing New Taiwan Dollar banknotes, and the old notes issued by the Bank of Taiwan were taken out of circulation.
