More than a dozen agreements will be signed during a visit to Hungary by Chinese President Xi Jinping, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said on Monday, fielding questions at a press conference, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Szijjártó said 16 agreements would "certainly" be signed, while talks were still underway on two more agreements.

Among the agreements are ones on infrastructure investments in Hungary in the framework of China's Belt and Road Initiative, he said. Comprehensive bilateral cooperation in the area of nuclear energy will start, and exports of Hungarian farm products to China will get a boost, he added.

Tourism developments will also be on the agenda, as will China's peace plan for the war in Ukraine, he said.

President Xi Jinping will be accompanied on his trip to Hungary by Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs Wang Yi, Minister of Finance Lan Foan, Minister of Commerce Wang Wentao, Chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) Zheng Shanjie and General Administration of Customs director Yu Jianhua.
