Prime Minister Janez Janša and his ministerial team meet his Hungarian counterpart Viktor Orbán

By: UKOM

Prime Minister Janša and his ministerial delegation met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and his ministerial team in Celje yesterday.

In the morning part of the visit, the two prime ministers and their delegations attended the opening of the 53rd International Trade Fair, with Hungary participating as a partner state. Slovenia sees this as a confirmation that Hungary seeks to further economic cooperation between the countries. Both prime ministers gave opening addresses, emphasising close cooperation between the countries, which the Hungarian prime minister described as historically the best it has ever been. In their addresses, both prime ministers briefly discussed the coronavirus crisis and its impact on the economy.

After the formal opening, the Slovenian and Hungarian prime ministers met for bilateral talks, examining the areas of cooperation between the countries and the possibilities for its expansion. Separate bilateral talks were also held between other attending ministers.

A joint government meeting in a form of a working lunch was also aimed at reviewing intensive bilateral cooperation in areas of business, infrastructure, defence, home affairs, culture, science and national minorities. Slovenia and Hungary foster friendly and diversified relations. An important contribution to this comes from regular dialogue between the representatives of both countries. This dialogue is also intensive at the highest government levels.

The meeting of Slovenian and Hungarian prime ministers was attended by Zdravko Počivalšek (Minister for Economic Development and Technology), Matej Tonin (Minister for Defence), Jernej Vrtovec (Minister for Infrastructure), Aleš Hojs (Minister for the Interior), Simona Kustec (Minister for Education, Science and Sport), Ignacija Fridl Jarc (State Secretary at the Ministry of Culture), Stanislav Raščan (State Secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Dejan Valentinčič (State Secretary at the Government Office for Slovenians Abroad), and Stane Baluh (Director of the Government Office for National Minorities).

The Hungarian delegation included Prime Minister Orban, and Zsolt Semjén (Deputy Prime Minister and minister without portfolio), Sándor Pintér (Minister for the Interior), Tibor Benkő (Minister for Defence), Péter Szijjártó (Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade) as well as Miklós Kásler (Minister for Human Resources).
