HEPA cooperating with NAK to expand agricultural exports
The Hungarian Export Promotion Agency (HEPA) signed a cooperation agreement with the National Agriculture Chamber (NAK) yesterday to share information and support each other's market analysis to identify farm businesses that want to expand into foreign markets, according to agroinform.hu.
HEPA CEO Kristóf Szabó said the farm sector could improve Hungary's trade balance.
He added that HEPA had launched online courses offering instruction in the basics of foreign trade available free of charge to anyone.
NAK chairman Balázs Győrffy said the agreement with HEPA aims to help SMEs, as well as more significant agribusinesses, weigh the benefits of doing business abroad. He noted that the farm sector's trade surplus widened 10% last year.
