Internal trade

Trade is the resale of purchased goods without conversion, an activity that links production to consumption. Trade in goods contributes to the efficient functioning of the national economy, the efficient use of resources, and the return on investment. During buying and selling, the goods purchased from producers are stored, stocked and then sold to users. Statistics on internal trading establishments include the number of internal trading establishments operating in Hungary. Another area of internal trade statistics shows the following: domestic retail sales and volume changes in domestic retail sales.
