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.

Economy

  • As security improves, foreign investment is helping to spur increased economic activity, particularly in the energy, construction, and retail sectors.
  • To reach its economic potential, Iraq needs to reduce regulatory impediments and make significant upgrades to its oil processing, pipeline, and export infrastructure.

History

  • The Dinar was fixed at par with the British Pound until 1959, then fixed to the US Dollar at one Dinar to 2.8 Dollars. It was decoupled from the US Dollar when that currency was devalued in 1971 and 1973.
  • After the Gulf War in 1991, UN sanctions meant that new, inferior quality banknotes were printed in large quantities-and the Dinar quickly lost its value. The previous issue stayed in circulation, and became known as the ""Swiss dinar."" It continued to circulate, especially in the northern Kurdish region of Iraq.
  • The new (convertible) Iraqi Dinar was released on October 15, 2003. It replaced all old Dinar and Swiss Dinar banknotes, which were no longer legal tender. (One old Dinar was exchanged for one new Iraqi Dinar; one unit of the Swiss"" Dinar was exchanged for 150 new Iraqi Dinars.) The new Iraqi Dinar banknotes were similar to the Swiss Dinar notes, with more security features to guard against counterfeiting.
  • The new banknotes were in demand by overseas investors expecting the currency to increase in value as Iraq's economy improved.
