Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs attends opening of new consulate in Monaco

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary, Péter Szijjártó, was welcomed to Monaco earlier this week to meet with Prince Albert II and officially open the Principality’s new Hungarian Consulate.

Born in 1978 in Komárom, Hungary, Péter Szijjártó has played a pivotal role in Hungary’s political landscape.

During his official visit on Tuesday 4th June, Szijjártó attended the inauguration of the new Hungarian Consulate in Monaco, a significant milestone in nurturing cultural and economic bonds between the two countries. Also present were Georges de Habsbourg-Lorraine, Ambassador of Hungary in France and Monaco, and Jose Luis Delso Martinez-Trevijano, the current Honorary Consul of Hungary in Monaco, who has been tasked with promoting cultural exchanges and facilitating business partnerships between Hungary and Monaco. 

Minister Szijjártó’s meeting at the Ministry of State with Monaco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Isabelle Berro-Amadeï, included a review of the bilateral relations between the two countries, which have flourished since establishing diplomatic ties in 2016. 

Later in the day, Szijjártó participated in a conference at the Metropole Hotel organised by the Monaco Economic Board, a key player in promoting economic cooperation between Monaco and Hungary. The meeting, themed ‘Business Destination: Hungary’, provided a platform for Monaco’s economic players to interact with the Hungarian minister and exchange of ideas for cooperation.
