Serbia and Hungary have developed a highly successful cooperation over the past seven years, Ana Brnabić, the Serbian prime minister, said in Budapest on Wednesday, after meeting Viktor Orbán, his Hungarian counterpart. Speaking at a joint press conference, Brnabić called the bilateral agreement concluded on strategic partnership “a pinnacle of cooperation” since the first Hungarian-Serbian joint government meeting was held in 2014. The partnership agreement, and several other bilateral agreements signed today, are results of that cooperation, confirming Serbia’s commitment to strengthening relations and deepening friendship with Hungary. Brnabić thanked Hungary for its support to Serbia’s prospective EU integration. She noted a separate agreement signed at today’s meeting on Hungary sharing expertise in the progress. Speaking about economic ties, Brnabić noted that Hungary is Serbia’s third most important business partner and is seen to become number two with bilateral trade continuing to rise. She highlighted joint infrastructural projects that reflect “a high level of mutual trust”. Brnabić also thanked Orbán for his support to Hungary’s Serbian community, and confirmed Serbia’s support to its Hungarian community.
