Historically, Hungary and India enjoyed close and friendly relations when the diplomatic relations were set in 1948. India's role in the 1956 Uprising in the country can not be forgotten; for saving the life by India's intervention with the then Soviet Union of Dr. Arpad Goncz who subsequently served as President of Hungary from 1990 to 2000.[1]

Economic relations

The Hungarian exports have hitherto been confined to high technology, industrial products, automobiles, telecom and IT, but Mr. Orban's government is keen for developing exports in agricultural and food products and services, too. Indian companies have invested $1.3 billion in Hungary, but there is scope for more.[2] There are various areas of cooperation, including collaboration on research and development, automotive components, healthcare, machine tools, agriculture machinery, non-conventional energy and electrical equipment, electronics, information technology, pharmaceuticals higher education, entertainment, etc. Indian investment in Hungary is almost USD 1 billion and Indian firms provide employment to over 7,000 people in the country.[3]

Cultural relations

ICCR has been deputing a Visiting Professor of Hindi to the Department under the bilateral Cultural Exchange Program between India and Hungary, since 1992. Hungarians have shown considerable interest in Indian dances, music, yoga and meditations. There are more than 200 yoga centres and about 6 schools of Indian dances and music in Hungary. Indian cultural troupes visit Hungary from time to time. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in a speech, said that relations between the two countries have remained on a "steady course" over the years and both the countries would be each other`s bridge to Europe and Asia.[4]
