Producing journalism worthy of the name is an expensive business. For 27 years, the editors, editors and reporters of the Budapest Business Journal have strived to bring you business news that works, information you can trust, that is factual, accurate and presented without fear or favour.

Newspaper organizations around the world have struggled to find a business model that allows them to continue to stand out without compromising their ability to perform. More recently, some have experimented with the idea of ​​engaging their most important stakeholders, their readers.
