Orbán: Hungary, Germany ‘natural allies’ on competitiveness

German businesses know very well how important Hungarian factories, skilled workers and engineers are to the global success of German brands from vehicle production to the defence industry, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at the inauguration of Rheinmetall Hungary's plant in Zalaegerszeg on Friday.

Hungary, central Europe and Germany, Orbán said, were “inextricably linked”. “We are and will continue to be the most natural allies in maintaining competitiveness,” he added.

Besides the manufacture of fighting vehicles, the facility also has a test track and R and D centre so that production and R and D can be done in one place, Orbán noted.

“Made in Hungary in every sense of the word,” he declared, adding that “made in Hungary would not be what it is without German technology.”
