Hungary’s foreign minister in Japan talks on expanding food exports, autos investments
Tokyo, February 14 (MTI) – Hungary’s foreign and trade minister has agreed with Japanese counterparts on expanding Hungarian food exports to Japan and on investments in Hungary’s autos industry.
Péter Szijjártó told MTI by phone on the second day of his official visit to Tokyo that Japan is not only Asia’s biggest investor in Hungary but also an important export market for Hungary. It imports premium products such as Herend porcelain and is Hungary’s second most important export market in Asia.
Among the agreements, Szijjártó highlighted one on launching the export of wild boar meat.
The minister also met officials from Japan Auto Parts Industries, the chief executive of Suzuki, as well as representatives from Toyota and Bridgestone. He said that Tuesday’s talks would result in new investments arriving in Hungary, adding that the deals would be inked at a later point in time.
