Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó discussed on Friday bilateral economic cooperation with Miro Kovac, head of the foreign affairs committee of Croatia’s parliament.
Szijjártó and Kovac agreed on the need for an additional motorway connection between the two countries, the foreign ministry said in a statement. Croatia indicated plans to build a connection to Hungary’s M6 motorway by 2020.
At the meeting Szijjártó hailed the intergovernmental agreement on ensuring reverse supplies of natural gas via the Hungarian-Croatian gas interconnector.
They also agreed that the planned LNG terminal in Croatia would serve the energy security of the central European region as a whole and should be built as soon as possible.
The ministry noted that the Hungarian government and the Democratic Community of Croatian Hungarians had jointly prepared an economic development strategy that includes supporting businesses in Croatia’s Osijek-Baranya and Vukovar-Syrmia Counties in regions bordering Hungary.
