Reasons of such an interest in that region were presented on a meeting with members of the Committee on Foreign Relations, which took place on 23rd November 2010. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Zsolt Németh, explained Hungary’s involvement in Asia by a growing importance of this continent; “The future of the world economy and politics seems to be increasingly inclined to Asia, therefore both Hungary and the European Union should consider deepening relations with this region as their primary interest”, he said.
