Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, has consulted by phone with Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, and discussed economic bilateral ties amid the current global turmoil.
Minister Szijjártó said on social media on Sunday that Chinese corporate investors in Hungary were content with their local operations, while Hungary was taking action to ensure that the country maintained its competitive investment environment. He noted the impact of the war in Ukraine in Europe and the broader world, including a rife inflationary environment, skyrocketing energy prices, a food supply crisis and new waves of migration which “threaten global stability”. “I underscored that Hungary has an interest in the quickest possible restoration of peace, given this is the only solution to the challenges thrown up by the war that confront us,” the minister wrote.
