New website design

We were proud to greet the new year with a new website design thanks to BCCH member Netis Zrt., and hope that you all like it. If you look through the pages, you will find that there has been a little bit of re-arranging as well in the hope of making all the information more accessible and the website itself more user-friendly. Since we are here to help, we will be glad to receive your feedback regarding the website and our activities, so if you have any comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Embassy News
The latest news from the British Embassy in Budapest

The British Embassy closed a very eventful 2012, and will not be less busy this year either. They started 2013 by adding a new sector news section to their website, where they plan to publish regular updates on different sectors in Hungary to provide a general overview on these and on business opportunities. They also called the public's attention to Prime Minister David Cameron's speech on his vision for a more competitive, adaptable and flexible EU with Britain playing a leading role at the heart of the Single Market, and published useful information about changes in British passport services in Hungary.
