The MoU also seeks to encourage interaction over regional and international issues of common interest to both countries.

She disclosed that a reasonable number of Ghanaian students had benefited from Hungarian government scholarships and pursued further studies in Hungary in the areas of Medicine, Engineering and Agriculture, among others.
This, she said, was made possible under a Technical and Scientific Co-operation Agreement between the two countries.
For his part, the Hungarian Foreign Minister, Mr. Zsolt Nemeth, reiterated the fact that very cordial relationships had existed between Ghana and Hungary.
Mr Nemeth disclosed how unique West African countries were to Eastern Europe, adding that the MoU was a special co-operation document, the first of its kind between the two countries and that Ghana stood the chance of gaining more in the afore-mentioned areas of support in Africa.
