At the opening of the consulate, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said that the country is relaunching its economy as soon as possible and economic cooperation with neighbouring countries is key to its success. “As a result, the current task in Hungary
is to relaunch the Hungarian economy as soon as possible,” he told the ceremonial event. the consulate will be headed by Slovenian businessman Iztok Seljak. The success of economic cooperation with neighbouring countries is therefore vitally important for Hungary’s foreign economic performance and the relaunch of the economy, Szijjártó said. Landlocked Hungary needs good relations with the port of Koper which provides an export route for Hungarian exports to Africa and the Far East. Koper is a key city in terms of Hungary’s foreign trade policy, the minister said, underlining the importance of the Port of Koper for Hungarian companies exporting their products to the Far East and Africa. Hungary exported around 2 million tonnes of cargo in 2020, despite the Covid-19 coronavirus crisis. From Koper’s perspective, Hungary accounts for around 10% of its total annual cargo. Hungary’s new consulate will help Hungarian companies shipping their goods to, or doing business in, Koper as well as those investing in Slovenia. Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
