Closer economic cooperation with Russia sought
Foreign Trade State Secretary Péter Szijjártó met with the Tatarstan, Russia, regional deputy premier Ravil Muratov in Budapest yesterday in a bid to increase economic cooperation between the two countries.
Ministry spokesperson Éva Varga reported to local media that Szijjártó had advanced his government’s key goal of increasing exports to Russia.
According to ministry statistics, Hungarian exports to Tatarstan increased by some 83% year-on-year through June 2013. Exports to the Russian region include product and/or services in the agriculture, food, water management and technology industries.
