Potential for cooperation lies in the food, farming, water technology, sport, machinery and infocommunications businesses, the state secretary said after a meeting between business leaders of the two countries at a business forum in Budapest, on the sidelines of the second meeting of the Hungarian-Turkmen Economic Cooperation Intergovernmental Committee.
Szabó noted that the two sides will sign a double taxation avoidance agreement today. Bazarov Batyr, Turkmenistanʼs minister for economy and development, said his country wants to strengthen its business ties with Hungary and envisions Hungarian companies on its domestic market.
