Hungary will open a vice-consulate in Miami, President János Áder announced after talks with Francis Suarez, Miami’s mayor, on Friday.
The new representation will facilitate easier contact with Hungary for a local community of some 100,000 Hungarians and for a growing number of Hungarian tourists to Florida,
Áder told Hungarian public media after the talks.
Parties at the talks touched upon climate change, and Suarez talked about its impacts on Florida such as frequent hurricanes and flash floods as well as rising sea levels. Miami’s leaders expressed an interest in Hungary’s digital technologies and Hungarian experience in flood protection, President Áder said.
During his Florida visit, Áder will meet local Hungarians, mark the anniversary of Hungary’s 1956 revolt, and open the 50th conference of the American-Hungarian doctors’ federation.
