The Port of Hamburg – “Gateway to the World” for Bavaria

The Hungarian economy achieved an unprecedented growth of 7.1% in 2021, which has not been seen in the last thirty years. Thus, the Hungarian economy grew more than 2% faster than the EU average.

The Port of Hamburg also recorded a respectable increase in container volumes transported to 130,131 TEU to/from Hungary (+18%). Growth is expected to slow in the second half of 2022, and the big question is whether the Hungarian economy will lose momentum loses momentum and slips into recession.

Given the risks surrounding growth (high domestic inflation, rising electricity and gas prices, slowdown in lending, European gas crisis), a slowdown would not be surprising. According to the latest cautious forecasts, economic growth is expected to be around 2-3 percent in 2022, although the negative impact of the war in neighboring Ukraine cannot yet be fully quantified.

Activities of the Port of Hamburg Representative Office

Since 1961, the Port of Hamburg has had its own representative office in Munich to establish and maintain contacts with companies, associations, institutions and transport ministries in Bavaria.

The representative office advises member companies interested in the southern German and Swiss market, creates networks, organises and supports events and provides information in its market region about current developments in Germany's largest all-purpose port. In addition, the representative office is the first point of contact for southern German and Swiss companies and universities to organise visitor programmes around the Port of Hamburg and the ports of the metropolitan region.

In addition, there are presentations at events organised by network partners, in which the efficiency of the Port of Hamburg and its companies as well as its hinterland connections are presented.
