Budapest Airport will cooperate with two Chinese cargo hubs, Xi’an Xianyang and Zhengzhou international airports, to develop the Hungarian gateway into a major central and eastern European distribution base for Chinese goods.This was the main goal of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed during the ‘Belt and Road Forum’ summit held in Beijing.The document was signed by Wang Zhendong, deputy managing director of Xi’an Xianyang International Airport, and René Droese, chief property and cargo officer of Budapest Airport, in the presence of Péter Szijjártó, Hungary’s minister of foreign affairs and trade.Budapest Airport will also sign a cooperation agreement with Zhengzhou International Airport next month (May), when a Chinese delegation is due to visit Budapest.Said Szijjártó: “Between two countries – like these – with quite a distance between them geographically – strong economic cooperation is only possible if they are well-connected, which is why aviation connections, direct flights between Hungary and China, are of key importance.
