    About the ILO in Hungary

    Hungary is a member state of the ILO since 1955.

    Hungary is the host country of the ILO Decent Work Technical Support Team and Country Office for Central and Eastern Europe (DWT/CO-Budapest) established in 1993 to support former socialist countries in their transition to the market economy.

    The ILO has assisted Hungary in its economic and labour market transformation and in its accession to the EU in 2004. 

    The ILO provided support to the country recovering from the economic crisis to ensure that more and better jobs are created during economic recovery. Several ILO studies examined the impact of the crisis on wages, work inequalities or on the pension system.
