August 23, 2013

"Japan is a vitally important strategic partner for Hungary", Foreign Minister János Martonyi said on Friday after meeting his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida and signing a bilateral agreement on social security, according to a statement by the Hungarian Foreign Ministry.

Minister Martonyi stated that the agreement guarantees that the period spent by Hungarians working in Japan or Japanese working in Hungary is taken into consideration when their pensions are calculated. Minister Kishida emphasized that the agreement was very important to Hungarian and Japanese companies.

Both ministers expressed hope that this would further encourage Japanese companies to invest in Hungary and boost economic ties between the two countries.

The Japanese Foreign Minister also met Japanese people living in Hungary. On Saturday, Mr Kishida will visit the Suzuki plant in Esztergom and travel on later to the nearby historic town of Visegrád.
