A business reception was held at the Hungarian Embassy organized by the Embassy and the Hungarian Business Network (HBN) on 8 February 2017.

The event brought together 70 representatives of Dutch investors in Hungary, Hungarian businessmen living in the Netherlands, and Dutch governmental organizations. The event was opened by Ambassador Kocsis and Cisca Ansem, President of the HBN. 

In his opening speech Ambassador Kocsis highlighted that the Netherlands is a significant investor in Hungary, and many Dutch companies have already settled in the country. Organizations like HBN or Dutcham (the Dutch-Hungarian Chamber of Commerce) have made great efforts to strengthen the connection between the two countries. Innovative Hungarian start-ups had started their business in the Netherlands and we gladly note the expansion of Hungarian companies like Waberer’s International. Moreover talented Hungarian experts contribute to the work of Dutch companies with their intellectual added value.
