Virtual Conference Sessions of The Vice-Consulate of Hungary, Houston


The next episode of the Virtual Conference Sessions of The Vice-Consulate of Hungary will focus on US, Texan relations with Central Eastern Europe and Hungary. This time we step beyond trade and business issues, instead we will analyse what surrounds it. The immense volume of trade and investments between our regions should grant fertile grounds for a wider cooperation to exploit. In a world challenged by many factors such as coronavirus pandemic, economic crisis, US elections, evolving EU, future of transatlantic relations, energy crisis, NATO, China, international trade, globalization, sustainable growth, migration, climate, cyber security, our experts will be talking about prospects of cooperation in medium and long term between Hungary and Texas.
