“It is a matter of satisfaction that despite the ongoing pandemic, the two sides have been working together to cement their economic partnership further.”

The foreign minister stressed a further consolidation in partnership via government-to-government and private sector exchanges.

He added that Pakistan “looks forward to the second session of the Pakistan-Hungary Joint Commission on Economic Cooperation in Islamabad this year.”

He hoped that Hungary would also revise its travel advisory for Pakistan to improve the linkages.
