Viktor Orbán and His Bulgarian Counterpart Hold Talks During Turkish Visit

Prime Minister Viktor held talks with the President of Bulgaria, Rumen Radev in Antalya, Turkey. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Péter Szijjártó and Márton Nagy, Minister of National Economy, also attended the meeting, focused on reviewing Hungarian-Bulgarian economic relations, with a special emphasis on energy security.

Both sides expressed concern about the potential escalation of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict and called for a ceasefire and peace talks. They firmly rejected recent suggestions to deploy European troops to Ukraine.

During the visit, Minister Péter Szijjártó cited the latest data from the Central Statistical Office (KSH). He emphasized that despite global economic challenges stemming from the conflict in Ukraine and subsequent sanctions, Hungary’s economy demonstrated resilience and robust growth. In 2023, Hungary shattered its previous export record, reaching EUR 149.2B , representing a 4.7 percent increase from the previous year.

Mr. Szijjártó underscored the pivotal role of export performance in driving Hungary’s economic success.

He noted that despite Hungary’s relatively small population, it ranked 33rd globally in terms of export performance, a remarkable achievement. Furthermore, the trade balance showed a substantial surplus of HUF 3480B (EUR 8.8B).

He attributed this success to the collective efforts of the Hungarian people, strategic investment decisions, and the operations of companies investing in the country.

Looking ahead, the government remains committed to maintaining a labor-based economic policy to foster an environment conducive to the expansion of businesses in Hungary. This approach aims to create more reliable, well-paid jobs for citizens.
