Cooperation between Hungary and China has never been so good as it is today - said Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó on Thursday at the Hungarian-Chinese Bilingual Primary and Secondary School opening ceremony in Budapest.
In this chaotic world everyone is looking for peaceful and safe places. Hungary can remain peaceful and stable if it establishes strong strategic cooperation with the world's fastest growing economy, the People's Republic of China said the foreign minister.
There are many countries around the world that want to be China’s key partner; but Hungarians are among the very few that beyond economic cooperation also interested in Chinese culture and language; that's why the government has decided to expand Hungarian-Chinese relations in the educational and cultural sectors said Szijjártó.
Students who are in ELTE masters program or students studying Hungarian at Beijing University will be given an opportunity to take part in the internship program of the bilingual school to gain work experience explained the minister.
This school is unique in Central Europe because it comprises an elementary and a high school so students can remain in the program until they receive their high school diploma.
At the opening ceremony the Chinese-Hungarian friendship honorable award was presented for the fourth time.
The Hungarian-Chinese bilingual school was founded twelve years ago; today, nearly four hundred pupils attending the school that employs forty teachers.
