The Government of Hungary affirms that the international community cannot remain idle following the launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on 28 July. The DPRK has repeatedly and flagrantly violated the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and has continuously rejected cooperation with the international community.
Hungary and its allies condemn the launch of the missile, which landed in Japan's exclusive economic zone.
The North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile program not only represents a serious danger to the security of the Korean peninsula and the region, but also poses a global threat to the entire world.
The Hungarian Government calls upon Pyongyang to stop all provocations, to dismantle its nuclear program and to immediately re-enter the Six-Party Talks, which could lead to a nuclear weapon-free and enduring settlement based on peace on the Korean peninsula.
North Korea’s nuclear ambitions and reckless provocations constitute the gravest threat to global safety and security today. We must increase diplomatic and economic pressure on the North Korean leadership to abandon their plans, which threaten regional and global peace.
Hungary welcomes even closer coordination between responsible members of the international community to repress North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs. We urge every country involved to fully commit to stopping the regime in Pyongyang.

Meet HIF’s 2017 Summer Intern: András Juhász
Every semester, HIF offers the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to intern with the foundation gaining substantive work experience while enjoying the bustling life of the US capital. This summer HIF is hosting Andrew Juhasz of Lexington, MA.
Andrew Juhasz is currently an undergraduate at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. His goal with this internship was to learn more about the day-to-day operations of a non-profit organization with the added benefit that HIF’s work helps strengthen the people-to-people relationship between the United States and Hungary.
Andrew was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts to Hungarian parents who fled the oppressive communist regime in (then) Czechoslovakia. His parents grew up in the southern region, known as Felvidék, which has a large Hungarian minority. They arrived to the United States in 1987 and became actively involved with the Hungarian community in the Boston area. Every summer he makes it a priority to visit his relatives in the Felvidék region of Slovakia. This year, he also worked as an English teacher in a secondary school Selye János Gimnázium in Komárno, Slovakia. Andrew hopes to build relations there that would strengthen opportunities between the US and Hungarians.
Andrew’s internship at HIF also provided the added benefit of being based in Washington, DC where he has multiple opportunities to attend panel discussions, hearings, and conferences of both personal and professional interest.
"Whether you are Hungarian or not, interning at HIF will give you a perspective on the amazing work Hungarians are eager to do in the United States to preserve and promote Hungarian culture. During the internship I have also developed my skills in writing, analysis, and evaluation, all of which are important in my path towards majoring in political science, and perhaps even developing a career in this line of field."

Newly released statistics by the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA) on Friday, August 4 displayed record levels of private sector growth and foreign direct investment (FDI) in Hungary. A record-breaking 47 investments projects worth a total $1.61 billion were successfully negotiated during the first six months of 2017, adding an additional 8,500 jobs to the Hungarian economy.
Hungary’s unprecedented economic performance comes on the heels of the Hungarian Government’s decision in November of 2016 to lower the corporate tax rate to a European Union low of 9%.
Over 70 percent of all investment in Hungary since the beginning of 2017 has been reinvestment by well-established corporations with Hungarian subsidiaries, a reflection of the strong investment climate in Hungary as well as the success of new HIPA initiatives aimed at better matching would-be investors with projects that meet a company’s resources and desired objectives.
The Hungarian Government has also placed renewed emphasis on the importance of attracting investment associated with R&D and other technology-intensive sectors, with new the introduction of a new campaign entitled “Invented in Hungary 2.0.”
The promotional initiative is aimed primarily at the non-refundable cash inventive system for the purpose of attracting additional high valued-added jobs to Hungary. HIPA is already in negotiations to finalize 7 projects under the new initiative whose total value exceeds $200 million
In 2015, the United States became Hungary's second largest investor worldwide and its largest foreign investor outside the European Union. The subsequent establishment of the US-Hungary Business Council (USHBC) in 2016, designed as a platform for high-level dialogue between American executives and top government officials, aims to build on this historical economic benchmark.
Currently, over 1,600 US companies and forty of the fifty largest US multinationals operate in Hungary providing jobs for over 100,000 Hungarians.
The ceremony marks the completion of the second of a three-stage accreditation process that will culminate with Ambassador Szabó’s presentation of his credentials to the President of the United States at the White House and receipt of his official title of Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary.
Prior to his arrival in the United States, Ambassador Szabó served as Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Hungary from 2014 to 2017. His arrival to the Foreign Ministry followed a long and distinguished career in the pharmaceutical industry, namely as Vice President of Eli Lilly, a Fortune 500 company based in Indianapolis. Ambassador Szabó also served as CEO of TEVA Hungary from 2010 to 2014.

Newly appointed Ambassador Dr. László Szabó organized a farewell reception for departing Acting Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Ambassador Warlick and Deputy Assistant Secretary Dunnigan on Friday, August 4.
The event, hosted at the Hungarian Embassy, was attended by officials from the Departments of State and Energy, Ambassadors and diplomats of the other V4 countries (the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia), as well as a number of representatives from the energy sector and think tank community.
The Hungarian Ambassador, also in his role as the current holder of the Visegrád Group Presidency, expressed the V4 Countries’ sincere appreciation for Ambassador Warlick and DAS Dunnigans’ close cooperation with their European partners aimed at diversifying European energy supplies and building critical new infrastructure including interconnectors and other facilities to enhance the import of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The Visegrád Countries together with the US State Department have lobbied extensively to expedite LNG exports to Europe. Special Envoy Warlick and DAS Dunnigan, serving at a time when shale gas development made the United States the world’s leading natural gas producer and a net importer, played an integral role in Congress’ adoption of the Energy Policy Modernization Act and the arrival of the first US LNG shipment to Europe, both in 2016.
In Central Europe, the first U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipment arrived in Poland on June 7, 2017. As current President of the Visegrád Group, Hungary is committed to the further diversification of LNG routes and sources in Central Europe. Projects of priority include the Vertical Gas Transmission Corridor connecting the gas transmission systems of Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and Hungary, as well as the completion of construction on a scalable LNG terminal in Croatia.
