During an official visit to Egypt, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, encouraged the forum’s participants to become involved in large-scale joint investments, according to Hungarian news agency MTI. He added that larger ventures could stimulate smaller investments, according to MTI.

Orbán drew attention to the financing agreement between Hungary and Egypt signed yesterday to make way for the delivery of 700 carriages to Egypt’s state railway, the news agency reported.

President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi expressed hope that the forum would generate opportunities to strengthen economic and business ties between the two countries, according to MTI.
