Hungary should triple its exports to non-European markets by 2018, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told a Hungarian-Indian business forum in New Delhi on Thursday, the first day of his visit to India where he met with PM Manmohan Singh and President Pranab Mukherjee.

At present
over 85% of Hungarian exports are destined for the European Union, Orbán said,
adding that the share of non-European markets in Hungarian sales had increased
from 8% three years ago to 12% now, and should be raised to 33% by 2018.

Hungary is
asking India to “put Central Europe on their map”, the Prime Minister said in
his presentation entitled 'Hungary and Europe in a changing world', held at Sapru
House, India’s foreign policy institute. Viktor Orbán said Central Europe,
including Hungary, offers promising opportunities with Europe's largest growth
potential; moreover, the region is over the crisis, it has successfully
undergone renewal.
