Budapest, May 9 (MTI) – Hungary offers 50 scholarships to Ghanaian students under the Stipendium Hungaricum programme, Zoltán Balog, the Hungarian human resources minister, told MTI from Accra on Monday.
Speaking after signing the agreement, Balog said that the move will bring the number of Ghanaian students in Hungary to 3,000. The minister noted that Ghana’s foreign minister Hanna Tetteh and deputy oil minister Benjamin Dagadu had also studied in Hungary.
During his visit, Balog also signed a sports agreement, under which Hungary will help Ghana with sports experts.
The minister noted that after 30 years Hungary had reopened its embassy in Ghana, which can thus become a new base of Hungary’s trade relations with western Africa.
