Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Márton Gyöngyösi, the chief of Jobbik foreign affairs cabinet, delivered a speech in an international conference in Changchun, Northern China. In front of a large audience of five hundred, he outlined his party's Asian policy and the importance of Chinese relations in Jobbik's global strategy.

In the speech entitled "Kína felemelkedése egy új sok-pólusú világrendben - tanulságok és lehetőségek Magyarország számára" (Emergence of China in the new multi-polar world – lessons and possibilities for Hungary) Gyöngyösi analyzed the post-cold war era by pointing out the initial naiveté of political gurus that envisaged a world inundated by liberalism and neo-liberal economic dogmas. After summing up the period incorporating the past two decades, he concluded that by the decline of the west the geopolitical center of world policy and its economic and political gravity is shifting to the East, especially to China. It is not a question that the history of the 21st century will be written in Asia said Gyöngyösi.

In relation to Hungary, Gyöngyösi emphasized Hungarians' Asian roots and his conviction that in the context of global changes opening to Asia is the only viable alternative left to the country. “Economic and business relations, like all relations, are based on trust, and trust is the strongest among kindred nations” said Gyöngyösi. He said Hungary is the only nation in Europe with Asian roots. “In terms of political agenda Jobbik is the most determined Hungarian party that is advocating a new Asian strategy. It makes me happy that the Orbán government also recognized the importance of Eastern relations; it can count on the support of Jobbik, both at home and abroad” closed his speech Márton Gyöngyösi.

Zsolt Semjén and János Latorcai of Fidesz also attended the conference.
