Hungarian, Israeli companies discuss cooperation
Hungarian and Israeli company representatives held talks in Budapest on possible cooperation in the areas of farming and farm technology as well as research and development.
Gábor Simon, trade attaché at the Hungarian embassy in Israel, said Hungary's food processing companies have a good chance on the market in Israel. He added that Brussels agreed a week earlier to expand Israel's preferential VAT quotas.
