Hungarian companies showcase innovations at high-tech expo in SW China
Hungarian companies showcased their technology, environmental innovations and “smart city” systems, with the aim of boosting Hungarian-Chinese cooperation, during a business event in Chongqing, southwest China, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
Hungary had the largest number of stands this year at the high-tech expo and fair, which takes place biennially in the city, Loránd Dióssi, Hungaryʼs consul general told Hungarian news agency MTI yesterday. The expo also provided a venue to launch the Budapest Cultural Spring, he added.
A thermal complex that will offer medicinal therapy is being planned for the city of Chongqing, Viktória Horváth, the ambassador in charge of priority projects at the Foreign Ministry heading Hungaryʼs 20-member delegation, told a press conference at the site. The complex will be built in three phases, the first two of which will have a budget of about CNY 520 million.
Talks with business people also touched on the possibility of combining thermal spa treatments with Chinese traditional medicine in a project to be launched in Hungary, she said.
Budapestʼs Technical and Economics University (BME) signed a cooperation agreement with Chongqing University on professor and student exchanges as well as joint R&D projects. BME together with seven Hungarian firms also signed a declaration to join the Chongqing Hungarian-Chinese Technology Transfer Center to be set up with support from the local governmentʼs High-Tech Incubation Center.
