Railway cooperation with China will involve Chinese freight transports to Europe passing through Hungary, National Development Minister Tamas Fellegi said on Saturday in a written response to an opposition MP.
Planned cooperation will also involve the reconstruction of existing railway lines, the planning and development of new railway lines and infrastructure, as well as the development of trains and carriages, logistics modernization and research and development in railway technology.
Chinese and Hungarian experts will assess the potential of regional and international cooperation based on the favorably geographical and infrastructure characteristics of Hungary, Fellegi said.
A statement on cooperation in the fields of public road, air and water transport involves Chinese partners in the planning, construction and maintenance of motorways, roads and bridges.
The agreement also covers the planning, construction and maintenance of river ports, and the construction and operation of airports, Fellegi added.
In the field of energy Hungary also raised the possibility of cooperation in the field of nuclear safety and the prevention of nuclear accidents, Fellegi said.
"The framework and form of cooperation will be prepared in the second half of this year," Fellegi said.
