A delegation from the Hungarian Parliament is visiting Taiwan to improve exchanges with their counterparts in Taiwan and explore the feasibility of bilateral cooperation in the areas of economics and trade, according to a statement released Sunday by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The delegation, which arrived Sunday, is composed of Istvan Tiba, a member of the National Assembly of Hungary, as well as Monika Bartos and Mariusz Revesz, two members of a Taiwan-friendly group in the Hungarian Parliament, according to the statement.
The delegation's visit to Taiwan aims to gain a further understanding of Taiwan's political, economic and social development and explore the possibility of cooperation with Taiwan in a wide range of areas, according to the ministry.
While in Taiwan, they will call on Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (???) and Deputy Foreign Minister Wu Chih-chung (???) and visit several central and local government agencies as well as Hsinchu Science Park, before departing on Sept. 1.
With nearly 30 members, the Taiwan-friendly group is one of a few large subgroups in the Hungarian parliament and supports increasing substantive exchanges and cooperation in various areas between the two countries, according to the statement.
Taiwan and Hungary have signed several agreements to strengthen bilateral relations, including a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on agricultural cooperation, a working holiday agreement to allow young adults to travel and work in each other's country, and an agreement for the avoidance of double taxation.
