PM Viktor Orbán makes an official visit to Japan in November at the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The Japanese minister of foreign affairs is expected to visit Hungary in the near future. During PM Viktor Orbán visit to Tokyo, the two countries sign an investment agreement said foreign ministry officials in Budapest.
One of the key areas of cooperation between the two countries is higher education.
Currently about two hundred Japanese medical students pursuing their higher education in Hungary. Higher education is a "priority area of bilateral relations, it is a great avenue for different cultures to better understand each other and develop mutual sympathy for each other; to further improve bilateral relation the Hungarian government is planning to provide more grants to Japanese students to encourage them to study in Hungary" said foreign ministry officials
Promising developments are taking place between the two countries in the area of energy development as well. Japan could be Hungary's valued partner in the fields of renewable energy and nuclear energy due to its leading role in these sectors. The Hungarian foreign ministry organizing a Hungarian-Japanese energy policy seminar in the field of renewable energy during the fall says foreign ministry sources.
