Pakistan-Hungary Ties

Hungary is a significant EU member state. Over the years, Pakistan and Hungary have developed positive bilateral relations.

Since 2016, Hungary has offered scholarships to Pakistani students. Hungary has currently started its outreach in Central Asia, the Middle East, South, and Far East Asia under its foreign policy project “Opening toward East.”

Each nation in the globe today is looking for markets for its goods and services on a global scale. In response to Hungary’s request for bilateral cooperation, Pakistan has taken an active role.

The trade and economic window between Hungary and Pakistan was established in March 2021. While looking into possibilities for exports to Hungary, Pakistan could benefit from the Hungarian experience.

Especially, in the areas of agriculture and food, the environment, water resource management, engineering, vocational training, and urban planning. In fact, Pakistan’s economic diplomacy strategy may benefit from the investigation of non-traditional markets.
