Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced that negotiations have begun on the establishment of a “serious” South Korean university campus in Budapest, reports 444 via state news agency MTI.
Speaking at the opening of the V4-Korea Business Forum in the Hungarian capital on Wednesday, the Prime Minister said that the otherwise friendly and cordial relations between Hungary and South Korea would be raised to a strategic level, and expand beyond economic relations to science, research and education.
Orbán also stated that the stronger the cooperation between South Korea and the European Union, South Korea and the Visegrad Four (V4), and South Korea and Hungary, the sooner the entire European continent will regain its competitiveness in the world economy.
Before the forum’s opening event, Viktor Orbán and South Korean President Moon Jae-in also met on Wednesday, where the Hungarian Prime Minister stated that “South Koreans are very respectable people.”
