Malta Chamber President Frank V. Farrugia welcomed the Hungarian Minister responsible for Trade and Foreign Affairs, the Hon Péter Szijjártó to the Exchange Buildings, for a meeting on trade potential between the two countries on 23rd February.
The meeting formed part of the Hungarian Minister’s official visit to Malta.
Welcoming Mr Szijjártó, the President said that the Chamber was eager to take advantage of his presence to illustrate the potential for enhanced trade relations between Malta and Hungary.
“Our prime mission as a national Chamber of Commerce, in a small country that is dependent on Internationalisation is to consolidate networks, relations and structures to deepen trade and investment flows between our two countries. I am encouraged by your presence here today and I am sure that our meeting can only contribute to take our trade relations to the next level” Mr Farrugia said.
The President explained how the Chamber was constantly looking for new markets and new opportunities for its members by extending its existing international network of contacts.
“Within this context, we are constantly seeking alleys of collaboration with our counterparts in all established, emerging and potential markets, as indicated by our members. In this vein, we are interested in seeking an improvement in the climate for trade and investment between Hungary and Malta. I am confident that as a result of our mutual efforts we shall be successful in achieving our objective” Mr Farrugia concluded.
