Spain's Zara, part of the Inditex group, plans to launch its retail stores onto the Hungarian market by the end of 2001. Two years ago, Inditex concluded a franchise agreement with holding company Fotex to operate a retail network for Zara garments. The two companies have now agreed to open six shops over the next three years, of which at least one will have a floorspace of 2,000 square metres.
