Hungary Table of Contents



Energy and raw-material extraction accounted for 13.1 percent of gross industrial production in 1986; metallurgy contributed 8.3 percent; engineering, 25.6 percent; chemicals, 19.1 percent; light industry, 12.9 percent; food processing, 16.8 percent; building materials, 3.2 percent; and other miscellaneous industry, 1 percent. As this industrial profile shows, Hungary's industry continued to reflect the Stalinist emphasis on heavy industry inherited from the immediate postwar period.
