In 2018, the Hungarian Ambassador to Ghana launched the Hungary Business Council in Accra.
The Business Council was to create a unique relationship between Ghana and Hungary and provide numerous business opportunities to boost the economies of both countries.
Mr. Szabo urged the Ghanaian business to take advantage of the council and seek any information on business opportunities in Hungary as well as be oriented on Hungary’s viable business modules.
He also stated that “the bureau has been opened to offer reliable information on where and what to invest in.”
The Ambassador noted that the next biggest task of the business council is to organize a trip for prospective companies to Hungary and tour the capital to see for themselves what Hungary has to offer.
