Szíjjártó has bilateral talks in China

Int’l Relations

Péter Szíjjártó, Hungary's state secretary for foreign affairs and external economy, traveled to China on Saturday for bilateral talks with the representatives of China, Romania and Montenegro.

Szíjjártó met China's deputy minister of trade, who had indicated China’s willingness to increase imports of Hungarian farm products. The sides agreed on the adoption of an expedited procedure for the issue of permits for Hungarian meat products. In the future Hungary would share farming technologies with China.

Szíjjártó’s discussion with Nita Constantin, Romania's economy minister, included talks on projects crucial for Hungary's energy security and on steps to accelerate the implementation of cross-border developments. A special emphasis was put on enabling reverse flow in a gas interconnector between Romania and Hungary by the end of 2014.

The Hungarian state secretary negotiated with Dragica Sekulic, deputy economy minister of Montenegro, about the opportunities available for the state-owned Hungarian Electricity Works (MVM) in the modernization process of Montenegro's electric grid.
