The Hungarian embassy in Washington DC on Wednesday opened a campus on its compound for businesses that want to make inroads into the American market.
The embassy will use the campus, with accommodations for twelve, to act as a liaison between Hungarian companies and potential American business partners with the help of a US consultancy.
Some 22 million forints (EUR 68,300) has been earmarked for the initiative this year to support companies in the healthcare, cybersecurity, drone and space technology industries.
“We want to bring Hungarian companies to the objective, so the American dream no longer remains just a dream,”
said László György, state secretary at the innovation and technology ministry, which partnered with the foreign ministry to set up the campus.
The first arrivals at the campus in Washington are expected in the autumn, he added.
László Szabó, Hungary‘s ambassador to the US, and US ambassador to Hungary David Cornstein attended the opening ceremony.
