Hungary and Romania are laying the groundwork for the next joint government session and long-term bilateral relations, with cross-border economic and tourist developments firmly in focus, the Economy Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
Government officials and a tourist working group on both sides recently met to set the agenda for the next joint government session and to agree on undertaking specific projects, the statement said.
Among the plans discussed were the development of cross-border health tourism and religious, cultural and heritage tourism.
Endre Horváth, the senior Economy Ministry official leading the September 16-17 joint working group, said that it was important for both countries to highlight their individuality yet complement one another in the European market and beyond.
The two countries also strive to nurture cross-border economic ties while jointly representing the interests of central and eastern Europe in the EU, the statement said. (MTI-Econews)
