House Speaker László Kövér met Justin Muturi, the Speaker of the National Assembly of Kenya, parliament’s press office said. This is the first time for the Kenyan house speaker to visit Hungary for what both sides qualified as a historic meeting, the office said. Hungary has already intensified political and economic ties with Kenya under its policy of opening to the South, it said. Kövér assured his partner of the Hungarian government’s commitment to further boosting bilateral economic ties and promoting direct investments by Hungarian businesses in Kenya and East Africa. He identified cooperation possibilities in farming, water management, health care, education and alternative energy production. The Kenyan house speaker is scheduled to meet Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén and Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó.
