Szijjarto: Hungary, Republika Sprska economic ties ‘unhindered by contested political issues’

There are no contested political issues between Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina's autonomous Serbian Republic, and so nothing stands in the way of developing economic ties, Hungary's foreign minister said in Banja Luka on Friday.

In his opening speech at a business forum organised by Hungary and the Republika Sprska, Peter Szijjarto said recent years had been “unpredictable” due to consecutive crises.

“In such times, the importance of reliable cooperation grows such as the economic, trade and inter-corporation cooperation between Hungary and the Republika Sprska,” he said.

The 24 Hungarian companies who had 32 representatives attending the forum were working with cutting-edge technology and had “ample references and experience,” Szijjarto said. They could greatly contribute to the economic prosperity and technological development of the Republika Sprska, he added.

The companies represented at the forum were working with cutting-edge technology in water management, sustainable energy production, agriculture and machine manufacturing, Szijjarto said.
