Hungary lifts ban on Sunday shopping

by Ákos Budai
On 11th April, the Hungarian government announced their proposal for parliament to abolish the standing law regarding Sunday closing for retail units.

According to CBRE’s experience this is a highly appreciated change in legislation by the industry.
