There has been an increase in outward foreign direct investment (FDI) and in the number of locally-owned or controlled multinationals in the Czech Republic and Hungary. However, data problems hinder to determine accurately the underlying trends and the main factors behind the changes. Data on outward FDI contain investment realised by all locally operational firms, regardless of their ownership. We rely on newly available balance of payments manual 6 (BPM) data and on company case studies. We show that outward investment by Czech firms must be much higher than what balance of payments data show. Hungary's case is the opposite. The leading Czech and Hungarian foreign investor firms can be categorised as “virtual indirect” foreign investors: they are in majority foreign ownership, but under domestic control. The reason for this special type of firms dominating in outward foreign direct investments can be found in the privatisation technique applied in these countries during the transition process.

Wooden structures are the oldest building elements accompanying man since time immemorial. The Czech Republic is strict in its legal and normative regulations relating to the use of wooden building components. In spite of that the Czech construction market is increasingly returning to wooden houses; not only for dwelling purposes, but also for public amenities. However, the structures made of wood as combustible material have to be carefully assessed especially from the viewpoint of fire safety of the building. This paper deals with the fire safety of wooden structures with special regard to the suspended type of ceiling, as it fulfils the role of insulation against the effects of fire. In particular, the thermal stress caused by fire and its impact upon the safety of the building elements has been investigated.

Az Egészségügyi Világszervezet és az Európa Tanács javaslatára folyamatosan mérik, illetve becsülik Európa légszennyezettségét, ezen belül a 10 és a 2,5 mikronnál kisebb szemcseméretű szállópor-koncentrációt. A 2,5 mikronnál kisebb szemcseméretű, különösen káros hatású szennyezettség kimagasló Közép- és Kelet-Európában, ezen belül főként Magyarország középső és keleti területein. Epidemiológiai elemzések szerint a 2,5 mikronnál kisebb részecskekoncentráció egyértelmű összefüggést mutat a cardiopulmonalis megbetegedések és a tüdőrák incidenciájával. A hazai levegő szennyezettsége is hozzájárulhat ahhoz, hogy Magyarországon a népességszám figyelembevétele után is másfél-kétszer nagyobb a cardiopulmonalis és tüdőrák-mortalitással kapcsolatos életévveszteség, mint például az egyébként hasonló történelmi-gazdasági adottságokkal bíró Szlovákiában vagy Csehországban.
