Hungary to open Embassy in Uganda

Hungary has selected Uganda as a priority country for development cooperation, the Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Trade, Mr Ferenc Dancs has said.

Dancs was meeting his counterpart, Sam Kutesa at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kampala on Wednesday.

The two discussed various issues on the multilateral and bilateral front, particularly areas from which they could learn from each other on handling refugee crises.

Dancs revealed to Kutessa that Hungary had selected Uganda as a priority country for development cooperation and would be exploring more business to business relationships and encouraging its private sector to venture into Uganda’s tourism, agro-processing, pharmaceuticals and oil and gas sector.

He explained that he was in the country to discuss in detail the content of the MoUs on development cooperation between the two Foreign Ministries.

Kutesa informed Dancs that Uganda had formally accepted a request from Hungary to open a Diplomatic Mission at the level of Charge D’Affaires in Kampala in the near future.

Dancs is in Uganda on an official visit from November 1 to November 4. Meanwhile, Kutesa will make an official visit to his counterpart in Hungary in the second half of November 2017, during which a number of MoUs in various sectors will be finalised and signed.

The meeting was attended by senior officials from both Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Uganda and Hungary, as well as the Honorary Consul of Hungary in Uganda, Mr. Gordon Wavamunno
