Palkovics in Berlin: the Hungarian-German relationship is a success story

In his statement to the public media, László Palkovics emphasized that in an extremely close relationship there are always issues that “need to be clarified”, so during the preparatory meeting of the two prime ministers, Viktor Orbán and Olaf Scholz, in Berlin on Monday, they also “cleared up” misunderstandings with the German vice chancellor. He emphasized

there are no “distant positions” in the field of economy, and the success of the cooperation is also shown by the fact that, according to the survey data of the German-Hungarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce, 88 percent of German companies operating in Hungary would choose Hungary again if they had to decide on their investment again.

He said that together with the politician of the Greens, who govern with the Social Democrats (SPD) and the Liberals (FDP), they reviewed a “new area”, energy, which is “added” to the cooperation so far, since there are conditions for the effective activity of German companies in Hungary, “for example, stable energy supply in Hungary “.

As he said, “due to the events of the past period, we also had to rethink the situation of Hungarian energy”, including the “independence” and environmentally friendly solutions that will characterize the next period.

He explained that they also discussed two “specific topics”. One is the construction of the so-called hydrogen economy, in which both Germany and Hungary have “strongly positioned themselves”, but they still have serious tasks to do. The other is the issue of new vehicle propulsion technologies, in relation to which the Hungarian and German governments continue to agree that the principle of “technological neutrality” should be enforced in political decision-making, explained László Palkovics.
