Political relations between Hungary and Georgia are “perfect”, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at a Hungarian-Georgian business forum in Tbilisi. All conditions are in place for successful economic cooperation between Hungary and Georgia, Orbán said in his closing address to the forum. Orbán said economic cooperation between the two countries was not impacted by Georgia’s conflicts with Russia. He called Georgia’s foreign policy “stable” and “reliable” and expressed Hungary’s support for the country’s territorial integrity.
Orbán said bilateral economic cooperation would be aided by a 90 million dollar credit line opened by Eximbank to promote business relations, the bilateral agreements signed during his visit as well as the establishment of a direct air connection between the two countries. Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said that although Georgia has a population of just four million and may seem like a small market, it plays an important role in the region. He called Hungary an important trading partner with which Georgia wants to deepen its relations. The forum was opened by Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, who said the two countries both employed the strategy of adapting to the fast-changing global environment.
