    Results of the IEER Quarterly Business Climate Survey

    The results of the latest quarterly business climate survey reveal less favourable economic conditions compared to the previous quarter: the IEER Quarterly Business Climate decreased from 31 to 21 points. It means that the enterprises detect a turning point: we received at least 30 points in each quarter since January 2016, 21 points were measured for the last time in July 2015. (The Business Climate Index was 33 points in the same period of the previous year.)

    This decline is mainly due to the fact that businesses are evaluating the current profitability, stock order, business situation, and past six-month production levels more negatively than in January. In addition, expectations on the development of investments have become more pessimistic.

    The Uncertainty Index is at a current level of 35 points, which is slightly lower than in the previous quarter (it was 36 points in January 2017). The value of the Uncertainty Index indicates that the current trend is not uniform within the private sector, and that it will continue to be confined to one part of the economy and will not be felt by all companies.

    Students from the Visegrad Group at Austrian, German, and British universities – 2002-2016

    In this brief analysis, the trends in the number of Hungarian students studying abroad at higher educational institutions are examined by using international statistical data. Results show that there were about 7500 Hungarian students participating in BA and Ma programmes at foreign colleges and universities both in 2014 and in 2015. Comparing the number of students participating in BA courses in Hungary to the number of students studying abroad it can be seen that not too many of them choose a foreign institution, but at the level of master’s programmes more students decide to quit the Hungarian higher educational system.

    This result could be interpreted as a deficiency in the Hungarian higher educational system, but at the same time it can be a sign of the high competitiveness of the Hungarian students internationally.
