This paper examines the impact of economic transition on the information technology industry in Hungary. It highlights some of the challenges faced by policy makers and businesses in their efforts to ensure that Hungarian technology capabilities survive the onslaught of fierce competition from abroad, and that the industry continues to grow and innovate in the context of a rapidly globalising economy. The paper is based on extensive field research conducted by the author in Hungary during 1998-2002.
