Hungary will open a diplomatic mission to handle trade and consular affairs in Panama, the foreign minister said ahead of talks in Panama City. Péter Szijjártó told MTI by phone that he will meet with President Juan Carlos Varela Rodriguez, Vice President and Foreign Minister Isabel de Saint Malo de Alvarado and Trade and Industry Minister Nestor Gonzalez. A meeting is also scheduled with Archbishop Jose Domingo Ulloa Mendieta. The foreign minister said he will sign with his partners a higher education cooperation agreement on grants for Panamanian students to study at Hungarian universities. To promote bilateral economic cooperation, the government has opened a 160 million dollar credit line with Eximbank to support Hungarian businesses’ investments in Panama, he said, noting prospective cooperation primarily in water management.
