He stated that “There is lots to learn from Hungary, with its inclusivity driven by trade and investment”. Further, he cited the example of economic integration of the European Union which has got tremendous natural synergies, driving its growth.

Speaking about the unique situation in trade and investment for India and Hungary, Mr. Abel Garamhegyi, State Secretary of the Ministry of Economy and Transport, Hungary, suggested Hungary as a gateway to the European Union market. Both the countries are not competing and by doing businesses together, best value for money can be derived

In the welcome address, Mr Sunil Bharti Mittal, President, CII, and Chairman and Group CEO, Bharti Enterprises, outlined the shared values between India and Hungary.
