Kovács Patrik believes that the next 10 years will be critical in terms of the Hungarian economy,because most of the Hungarian enterprises, especially the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) were established after the regime change. The owners of these companies are close to retirement age. In order to solve the situation more young (18-40 years old) entrepreneurs would be needed and generational change would be necessary – he added. (MTI)
