Budapest, May 26 (MTI) – Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto reopened Hungary’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
The foreign minister also opened a regional trade representative office for Hungary in the Malaysian capital.
Szijjarto had talks with Anifah Aman, his Malaysian counterpart, as well as with other senior officials.
Malaysia is Hungary’s third largest trading partner in southeast Asia, Szijjarto told MTI by phone. He added that under a recently adopted investment plan, Malaysia would mobilise funds totalling 444 billion dollars in the next ten years.
“We reopened our embassy in Kuala Lumpur and set up a regional trade representation in order to maximise investments from Malaysia and to boost Hungarian exports there,” the minister said.
