- Hungary Matters
Palkovics noted that Hungary has moved to integrate cutting-edge technology into its industry and services. On the International Monetary Fund’s list of European Union countries, Hungary offers the “most high-tech content” in its products after Germany and Denmark, he said.
The Hungarian pavilion is built around the theme “reality–virtuality continuum”, with spectacular solutions showcasing Hungarian innovation and academic achievements.
A “smart wall” presents Hungarian inventions, while interactive solutions offer insights into the results in the development of self-driving cars and laser research. CHTF, running through Nov. 17, focuses on electronic information, energy management and environmental protection, as well as groundbreaking work in the sectors of new materials, medical biology, electro-optics, smart cities and artificial intelligence.
Last year, the fair hosted 3,300 exhibitors and drew over 500,000 visitors.
Palkovics also met representatives of companies present in Hungary to promote the enhancement of ties between the countries.
He met the head of BYD, a company manufacturing electric busses in Komárom, in northern Hungary, to discuss opportunities of BYD’s participation in the development of electric vehicles. He also discussed cooperation opportunities with BGI, a leading Chinese company in gene sequencing technology.
