ISLAMABAD: Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary Peter Szijjarto will arrive in Pakistan on April 30 (tomorrow) on an official visit.
He will be visiting Islamabad at the invitation of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi. On his maiden visit to Pakistan, Foreign Minister Szijjarto will be accompanied by a high-level business delegation comprising over 20 leading businessmen to explore business opportunities in Pakistan.
Besides one-on-one meetings with Foreign Minister Qureshi, the Hungarian FM will also have delegation-level talks. The talks will review the existing bilateral relations and chart the way forward for taking the relationship to the next level.
The two sides will particularly focus on enhancing cooperation in bilateral trade, economy, and other potential areas such as agricultural research and food industry, environment industry including waste and water resource management, science and engineering technology, and higher education.
The two FMs would also exchange views on regional and international issues. Both foreign ministers will jointly address the Pakistan-Hungary Economic Diplomacy event, which will be attended by the Hungarian business delegation as well as representatives of Pakistani companies.
