Hungary Supports EU Free Trade Pacts
The Hungarian government supports European Union efforts to maximise the number of ambitious free trade agreements, but also trusts that the EU will “consider Hungary’s sensitivities, especially in agriculture”, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó told an OECD meeting in Paris on Thursday.

Freedom in global trade and removing obstacles from bilateral or multilateral cooperation is “crucial”, Szijjártó said.

On the sidelines of the OECD event, Szijjártó had bilateral talks with Francois-Philippe Champagne, Canada’s minister for international trade, Steven Ciobo, Australia’s trade minister, Jorge Faurie, Argentina’s foreign minister, and Ildefonso Guajardo, Mexico’s economy minister.
