SZIJJÁRTÓ: HUNGARY-CHINA COOPERATION 'SOLID FOUNDATION'

 

Hungary’s economic, trade and investment cooperation with China will provide a “solid foundation” for the country’s economic growth in the coming years, Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said in Beijing. He welcomed the Chinese leadership’s support for the further enhancement of cooperation, adding that Chinese companies at the forefront of the car industry revolution would continue to bring investments to Hungary. Chinese leaders also support further increasing the number of Chinese tourists visiting Hungary and boosting the volume of Hungarian food produce on the Chinese market, he added. Chinese companies have 6,400 billion forints (EUR 16bn) worth of investments under way, creating 25,000 jobs directly and “turning Hungary into one of the world-class centres of the global automotive revolution and technological renewal.”
