Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, on Tuesday had talks by phone with Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister Marijana Nikolova.
Hungary-Bulgaria economic ties are strengthening as top Hungarian companies boost their investments in Bulgaria, Szijjártó said on Facebook.
Wizzair, which has bases in Sofia and Varna, is launching new flights despite the epidemic, helping to restart tourism in Bulgaria, he said. Also, OTP Bank has become the second largest player in the Bulgarian banking market after acquiring a local bank. Both governments are focused on the Hungary’s Bulgarian community, and the Hungarian government has increased its support thereof by thirty times. Bulgaria’s government, meanwhile, is making a large contribution to the construction of a new Bulgarian educational and cultural centre in Budapest, the minister noted.
