Hungary will maintain its commitment to building closer cooperation within the Asia-Europe Meeting, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told an ASEM summit in Brussels on Friday and presented three proposals to that end.
According to information from the Prime Minister’s Office,
Orbán offered Hungary’s efforts to remove trade and investment barriers, help build economic links and human contacts.
Orbán proposed that negotiations aimed at free trade agreements should be accelerated and added that those accords should cover the broadest range of goods and services.
He suggested that cooperation between interregional banks such as the European Investment Bank, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the International Investment Bank should be deepened to obtain additional funds to complete infrastructure projects linking Europe and Asia.
Furthermore, the prime minister highlighted joint scholarship programmes that help the young generation to successfully meet challenges of the future.
