Over the past few years, the two countries laid down the political foundations of bilateral economic cooperation and now the time has come to carry out investments that benefit both countries, Orbán said after a Hungary-Serbia joint cabinet meeting.
The future and business opportunities belong to central Europe, Orbán later told a Hungary-Serbia business forum.
Central Europe and the Visegrad Group will be “great success stories in the years ahead because there are great economic opportunities here”, he said, adding that Serbia can partake in their economic successes.
Hungary-Serbia political relations have never been as good as they are now, he declared.
Concerning migration, Orbán said Hungary supports every measure by Serbia that is aimed at stopping illegal migration. This includes aiding the country with manpower, experts or financial resources, he said.
Orbán praised Serbia’s treatment of Hungarian communities living there, saying that the country’s minority policy was among the fairest in Europe. Orbán said Serbs living in Hungary could also count on the Hungarian government.
