Hungary's minister of State for Public Administration has held meetings with Algeria’s prime minister and foreign minister to build sporting and agricultural relations between the two countries.
Dr. Csaba Balogh, also co-chair of the Hungarian-Algerian Joint Committee for Economic Cooperation, highlighted the positive effects a direct flight between Hungary and Algeria has had on tourism and bilateral trade.
The parties also hope that the establishment of a new Hungarian-Algerian Business Council will give impetus to direct cooperation between enterprises.
In the sports field, there are plans for participation on joint training camps, international courses for trainers and sports science studies.
Dr. Balogh also praised the success of cooperation within the field of agricultural innovation. Since the establishment of the Joint Economic Committee two years ago, relations between the two countries’ agriculture research institutes have improved significantly, and visits by research delegations have become regular occurrences.
