British car maker Jaguar choose Budapest for that, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told public Kossuth Radio on 2 November, writes by referring to Hungarian news agency MTI.

The facility will be opened early next year and they will employ hundred Hungarian engineers at first – they will work on the IT development and electric drive of the cars –, the minister said, by adding that Jaguar choose Budapest for Europe’s lowest corporate tax and other tax benefits linked to research and development, and also for high levels of technical education.
