Hungary stand in Plovdiv draws strong interest

About 60 concrete inquiries about possible partnerships with Hungarian companies were made at the Hungarian Investment and Trade Development Agency's (ITD Hungary) stand at the International Fair Plovdiv in Bulgaria which ended on Saturday, Zoltán Deli, managing director of Mac-Line, which was commissioned to set up the stand, told MTI.

The stand had more visitors than ever before, Deli said. Some of Hungarian companies' most innovative and creative products were shown at the exhibition, including light-transmitting concrete and Rubik's Cube. Bauland, which builds passive houses, received several orders for holiday homes by the seaside as well as in the mountains, Deli said. About 150,000 visitors came to the fair in Plovdiv, at which Hungary was a partner country this year. Bilateral trade between Hungary and Bulgaria has more than tripled in the past four years. In 2008, it reached €860 million, of which Hungarian exports accounted for more than €750 million. There are more than 250 Bulgarian and Hungarian joint ventures in Bulgaria. Hungarian investments in Bulgaria come to €1.16 billion. (MTI-ECONEWS)
