Information Technologies (IT) are a powerful driver for economy-wide productivity, growth and jobs – and are arguably Europe’s best-bet investment for the future. They give great potential to transform the way in which we work, live and interact. The digital convergence of media and information services, networks and devices provide unique opportunities: for firms, to modernize their business processes and deliver a wide range of services; for consumers, for individuals to find and do remote e-work. The ratio of teleworkers compared to all employees is estimated to reach around 5% in Hungary today. The main objectives of the New Hungary Development Plan being the successor of NFT. Being part of the plan package, the Operative Program for the Development of the Economy significantly focuses on the support of the utilisation of ICT technologies and applications. This and the Hungarian Rural Development Starategy will support the exploitation of teleworking opportunities, thereby contributing to the employment of the disabled, persons with changed working capabilities and women.
