Who speaks Hungarian?

Hungarian has a status of the official language in Hungary, some regions of Slovenia and Vojvodina. Outside these regions, its users will be found in Slovakia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine and Austria.
History of the Hungarian language
In ancient times, Hungarians lived in the areas around the Kama, a Russian river, where they dealt with the Proto-Bulgarians. Later, around the 7th century AD, they moved towards the Azov Sea, where they had contact with Khazars. It resulted in the impact of the Turkish language on Hungarian. After 895, Hungarians conquered the Carpathian Basin and adopted a lot from the Slavs. When Hungary became Christian, a lot of loanwords from Latin entered the Hungarian language. And in the 16th century, when the Habsburgs ascended the throne of Hungary, a lot of German borrowings permeated into the Hungarian language. In the 19th century, Hungarian underwent a reform aimed at its purification and introduction of words originated from the Finno-Ugric languages.
Use of the Hungarian language in business
Hungarian is used practically in Hungary; in other countries, it is used only locally. Therefore, its knowledge will only be useful for these companies that conduct business relationships with this country. In the international arena, it does not play a significant role.
