Orbán Has Talks With Deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan


Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met Uzbekistan’s Deputy Prime Minister Sardor Umurzakov in his office and discussed protection against the coronavirus epidemic and developing economic links, Orbán’s press chief said.

Orbán expressed thanks for Uzbekistan’s cooperation in the efforts against the epidemic which involved sending 650,000 protective masks to Hungary in the spring, Bertalan Havasi said. At the same time, Hungary helped Uzbek citizens return home after the outbreak of the pandemic, he added. The sides were in agreement that it is worth investing in the development of Hungarian-Uzbek economic ties. Hungary can participate in water management and renewable energy projects, the modernisation of the electricity network, and agricultural investments, such as building food processing capacities, he said. Uzbekistan has 50 years of experience in the peaceful utilisation of nuclear energy and it is the world’s seventh largest uranium supplier, he added. The talks also covered exchange schemes in education and Orbán said that Hungary had offered scholarships at Hungarian universities to 100 Uzbek students annually until the end of 2023. Umurzakov is in Budapest to attend the 6th co-chairmen’s meeting of the Hungarian-Uzbek economic cooperation intergovernmental committee.
