Int’l Relations

Hungary’s Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said that the upcoming visit of Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel is a sign of Germany’s appreciation towards the importance of the bilateral cooperation of the two countries, Hungarian news service MTI reported.

Szijjártó said that Germany is Hungary’s most important European ally, adding that the industries of the two countries have “practically grown together”. Szijjártó added that the cooperation between Germany and Central Europe is “crucial for the competitiveness” of Europe as a whole.

According to the minister, the cooperation between the two countries is “not burdened with any open or difficult issue which could not be resolved very quickly”. He noted that more than 6,000 German companies are active in Hungary, employing approximately 300,000 local residents, and added that Hungary’s exports to Germany exceeded a record €21 bln in November.
