Hungarian-Romanian mixed economic-committee session set
Foreign Trade State Secretary Péter Szijjártó and Minister of Economy Andrei Gerea of Romania agreed at a meeting in Bucharest, Romania, on Monday to convene a session of the Hungarian-Romanian mixed economic-committee.
The session will take place in Budapest on February 27-28, 2014. Szijjártó said that he and Gerea had agreed to accelerate the joint Hungarian-Romanian border-crossing program to be implemented during the European Union's 2014-2020 budgetary cycle.
Szijjártó noted that Hungary is Romania's fifth-largest trade partner, while Romania is Hungary's sixth-largest trade partner, and stated that it would be important to transform the one-way pipeline transporting gas from Arad to Szeged into a two-way pipeline.
Szijjártó was in Bucharest as part of the Prime Minister Viktor Orbán-led Hungarian delegation attending a summit meeting between Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and officials from 17 countries in central and eastern Europe.
