Áder tells America to build economic ties with Hungary
Building economic ties with the Visegrád Four countries, which represent a market of 65 million people, is a worthy goal for U.S investors, Hungarian President János Áder said in New York yesterday.
Áder told 150 professionals at the economic forum at the Google headquarters that a system of higher education is being developed in areas where high-tech companies set up business, for example near Győr in North-Western Hungary.
Between 2000 and 2012, spending on research and information technology rose by 35%. During the EU`s new seven-year budget period, Hungary can double its spending on research and development, compared to the previous seven years.
Slovak President Andrej Kiska, Czech Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek and Polish deputy economy minister Ilona Antoniszyn-Klik attended the meeting.
