CHINA 'VERY IMPORTANT PARTNER', SAYS MINISTER AT LAUNCH OF YEAR OF DRAGON STAMP

 

China is “a very important partner” for Hungary, Márton Nagy, the economy minister, said at the launch of a Year of Dragon stamp, marking Chinese New Year on Thursday. The minister said he trusted that bilateral cooperation would continue to develop this year and surpass the success of 2023.
Fully 380 Chinese companies employ 16,000 people in Hungary, and China brought the largest volume of FDI to Hungary in 2023, he noted. Gong Tao, China’s ambassador to Budapest, noted that this year marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Hungarian-Chinese diplomatic relations. “In the Chinese calendar, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon with the dragon symbolising luck and power for the Chinese people,” the ambassador noted.
