Hungarian Growth Threatened by Weak Labor Market, Moody’s Says

May 4 (Bloomberg) -- Hungarian labor-market weaknesses make the government’s targets for economic growth “very difficult” to reach, said Anthony Thomas, a senior sovereign risk analyst at Moody’s Investors Service.

“The thing which concerns us more than anything is the poor demographics,” Thomas said in an interview in Prague today. “If you look at the labor market, it’s a shrinking population, the participation rate is low, so in terms of generating strong growth it’s just very difficult to see where that’s going to come from.”
