President Novak discusses cooperation with Texas governor
“The State of Texas holds just the same values as Hungary,” Novak said.
Abbott said his state was open to build business relations with other countries, and noted that Texas in itself would be the eighth largest economy in the world. He voiced readiness to cooperate with special regard to car making and the space industry.
The talks touched upon opportunities offered by Texas’s oil and gas industry to meet Hungary’s energy demands, too.
Novak highlighted Texas’s recent economic achievements, and said she was looking forward to the implementation of a recent agreement between Hungary and Axiom Space in Houston, adding that the partnership “could help a second Hungarian astronaut to space”.
Concerning shared values, Novak mentioned the fight against illegal migration, the family, as well as “the fundamental values of security and the nation”.
