Hungarian and Chinese PMs meet
Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány is scheduled to meet his counterpart Wen Jiabao and vice president Zeng Qinghong for talks at the Chinese parliament, where he will be greeted with military honors on Monday.
Gyurcsány started a four-day visit in China on yesterday, opening an eight-month Hungarian season in Beijing. He is also scheduled to address a Chinese-Hungarian economic and business forum on Monday and open a week of Hungarian gastronomy and tourism. On this morning, Gyurcsány and economy minister János Kóka were present at the signing of an agreement to set up a Chinese Brand Trade Center in Budapest and a Hungarian industrial park in Shenyang. On Tuesday, Gyurcsány will travel to Shanghai to attend another business forum and inaugurate a statue of Hungarian poet Sándor Petőfi. He will also attend the signing of a contract about Hungary’s participation at the world expo of Shanghai in 2010.
Prime Ministers signed an agreement on setting up a trade center to encourage and assist Chinese businesses to set up their European bases in Hungary. The trade center will be the first such center in Europe and the second in the world. The first was opened in Dubai in 2004. The center could draw more than a thousand Chinese businesses to Hungary. Gyurcsány also signed an agreement today on setting up a Hungarian industrial park in the Chinese city of Shenyang. Later in the day, Gyurcsány is scheduled to meet his counterpart Wen Jiabao and vice president Zeng Qinghong for talks at the Chinese Parliament. Gyurcsány started a four-day visit in China on Sunday. (Mti, Mti-Eco)
