Abstract

Hungary appears to have enjoyed relative success so far in the transition from communist rule to democracy and the market. Multi‐party elections and a parliamentary system are established, with a clear division of political functions; foreign investment is flowing in, and a private sector is developing. To some extent the success builds on the reform experience of the communist era. Further progress depends in part on the international environment, and also on the success with which new governments tackle problems of property ownership, popular consultation and information management.
