Finance Minister Mihály Varga met his Czech counterpart, Zbyněk Stanjura, in Budapest on Monday. During the working lunch, the ministers touched on the challenges facing the European Union and the priorities of the current Czech presidency. Other topics included energy security, especially the financing of gas reserves, EU funding and the challenges regarding the recovery fund. Besides being an important ally, Czechia is also Hungary’s sixth most important trading partner, where bilateral trade picked up by 10 percent last year.
