Hungary to rebuild two Catholic churches in Mexico

Péter Szijjártó held talks on economic issues with Mexican Minister of Economy Graciela Marquez Colin in Mexico

The foreign minister has signed an agreement on Hungary granting 2 billion HUF (6.23m EUR) for the rebuilding of two Catholic churches in Mexico. 

Péter Szijjártó also held talks on economic issues with Mexican Minister of Economy Graciela Marquez Colin in Mexico on Tuesday. 

The minister told MTI that the Hungarian government launched a policy of opening to the south in 2015 which placed emphasis on cooperation with Latin American countries with fast-growing economies. 

Minister Szijjártó said the development of Mexican-Hungarian relations has demonstrated the success of the scheme. 

Mexico is Hungary’s number one trade partner in the region, with bilateral trade exceeding 1 billion dollars last year, including 875 million dollars of exports.

The government has also opened a 620 million dollar credit line in Eximbank to help Hungarian companies’ activities in Mexico.
