Hungary, Vietnam expand water, nuclear cooperation
Hungary and Vietnam are expanding their cooperation in the area of nuclear energy, President János Áder said after talks with his Vietnamese counterpart Truong Tan Sang in Budapest yesterday.
In the coming years, almost 2,000 Vietnamese experts will be trained with the help of Hungarian engineers, Áder said. Vietnam wants to put its own nuclear power plant into operation by 2020.
Also achieved at the meeting was the conclusion of a framework agreement on water management for flood defense and water-quality control. The agreement build on previous accords between the two nations, most recently resulting in the subcontracting of Budapest Water Works to found a new water treatment facility in Hanoi.
Sang promised greater exposure for Hungarian products within the Association Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) markets and is travelling with a delegation of 70 Vietnamese business leaders who are meeting potential Hungarian partners at a forum today.
Hungary was publicly described by Sang during his visit as “one of Vietnam’s most significant traditional Central European friends” and “an important corridor to the European Union.”
