Prime Minister Viktor Orbán hosted the board of directors of Indian tyre maker Apollo Tyres for a working dinner on Wednesday. The members of Apollo Tyres’ board visited the company’s plant in Gyoögyöshalász, in northern Hungary. The prime minister and the company’s leadership were in agreement that cooperation and relations between the Hungarian government and Apollo Tyres have been “exceptionally close” and good in the six years since the tyre maker began its operations in Hungary. They noted that the “success story” of Apollo Hungary carried an especially strong message in 2023 given that this year marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Hungary and India. The meeting was also attended by Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó and Finance Minister Mihály Varga among other senior officials.
