The Hungarian Government announced at the end of 2020, that similarly to previous years, it will launch the fifth edition of the so called ‘EPITO’ (“Constructing”) program.

Having a HUF 12 billion fund, EPITO-5 aims to increase the productivity and efficiency of the Hungarian construction sector, specifically to mitigate the negative impact of the coronavirus epidemic on the industry. The goal of the program is to finance technological developments, the purchase of machinery and investments for the purpose of re-industrialization of small and medium-sized construction enterprises with non-refundable aid, thus improving the efficiency and productivity of companies. In order to generate capacity, the program prioritizes the support of trainings, specialization and the spread of digitization in the sector.

The construction industry performed outstandingly in 2019, and in 2020 it adapted well to the pandemic situation. Following the breakdown of the first wave of the pandemic, the performance of the sector continuously improved in the second half of 2020. Since a large number of investments are expected in the nearby future due to reducing the VAT on housing, it is important for the construction sector to get help during the pandemic via economic recovery programs and investments.

The detailed information of the support program and the announcement will be published later in January 2021 on www.kormany.hu and www.emi.hu.
