National Development Minister Tamás Fellegi will hold talks on economic cooperation in China on April 15-22, the National Development Ministry told MTI on Thursday.
Fellegi, in his capacity as government commissioner for Hungarian-Chinese economic relations, will hold talks on developing bilateral economic and trade cooperation, on export opportunities for Hungarian companies and on expanding Chinese investments in Hungary that create jobs, the ministry said.
The minister will travel to Hong Kong, Beijing and Shenzhen. He will hold government-level talks with China's Trade Ministry, Foreign Ministry, Rail Ministry and Transport Ministry, as well as meet with representatives of the country's Air Traffic Authority and Central Bank. Fellegi will also meet with business leaders.
The talks will cover infrastructure, electronic, IT and tourism developments as well as cooperation in the areas of trade, finance, air travel, R&D, culture and education.
Fellegi will meet with the management of Chinese telecommunications company Huawei to review further opportunities to cooperate. Huawei announced on Thursday that it was making its support centre in Hungary permanent after it successfully completed a test period.
Fellegi's delegation on the official visit will include Hungarian Development Bank (MFB) deputy-CEO Zoltán Urbán, Government Debt Management Agency (ÁKK) head Gyula Pleschinger and state-owned railway company MÁV chief Ferenc Szarvas.
