The foreign ministers of Hungary and Vietnam have signed an agreement on a comprehensive tied aid programme, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó announced at a press conference

Szijjártó signed a framework agreement on a new and comprehensive tied aid program. He also emphasized to reporters that this was not the first such agreement, as two tied aid programmes have already been successfully organised between Hungary and Vietnam, which were related to the construction of a water treatment plant and the introduction of a provincial population registration system.

The Minister added that

Based on this previous success, we have launched a tied aid programme within the field of healthcare, within the framework of which Hungary will be constructing a 500-bed oncological hospital in the city of Cần Thơ at a cost of 60 million euros

He also told reporters that Hungary’s Eximbank signed the related financing agreement on Monday.
