Hungary Delegation Holds Talks With Huawei Chairman
A Hungarian delegation led by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán held talks with Guo Ping, rotating chairman of Huawei, in Shanghai, on the sidelines of the Chinese International Import Expo (CIIE), Orbán’s press chief Bertalan Havasi said.

Guo said at the meeting that Huawei has invested 1.2 billion dollars in Hungary since 2005.

The group has also opened its Europe Operations and Maintenance Centre for digital cloud services, which currently employs 30 engineers, Guo said.

This number may grow, depending on the growth of Huawei’s businesses in Europe. The group’s Hungarian subsidiary has contributed 40 billion forints (EUR 123m) in taxes to Hungary’s central budget over the past five years, he said.

The sides also discussed social and economic issues and digital transformation.
