Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has highlighted the necessity for stronger business relations between Hungary and Germany.
“There are no developments in sight that could disturb Hungarian-German ties but there are some factors pressing for strengthening economic cooperation,” PM Orbán said following talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Sopron, western Hungary, on Monday.
The Prime Minister added that the economy was in the focus of his talks and noted that Germany is Hungary’s top investor and trading partner.
Answering a question, PM Orbán said that central Europe was a contributor to Europe’s economic output and insisted that “the traditional German-French axis is now completed with considerations of the interests of central European peoples”. The Prime Minister said this is a new process.
“Central Europe will have a growing weight in European decision making; ties between Germany and Central Europe will have a focal role in preserving Europe’s unity," the Prime Minister added.
