Karim Massimov, the prime minister of Kazakhstan, met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Speaker of the Hungarian National Assembly Laszlo Kever last week to discuss bilateral trade and economic cooperation.
The parties met in Budapest where they discussed Hungary's position as the largest trade partner among the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), The Astana Times reports.
Hungary's support of Kazakhstan's accession to the World Trade Organization was also discussed. The two countries have historically enjoyed a solid partnership, though Massimov has interest in strengthening ties.
"We need to bring Kazakh-Hungarian relations to a qualitatively new level of strategic partnership," Massimov said, according to The Astana Times.
