The Sharjah delegation, led by DGR Chairman Sheikh Fahim Al Qasimi, will meet their Hungarian counterparts to gain a comprehensive overview of Hungary’s strides in promoting culture, creativity, and heritage as key pillars of a sustainable economy. Hungary’s arts and specialised museums are hailed as noteworthy models that reinforce the power of creativity in laying the foundations for achieving sustainable development and accelerating economic growth.

The delegation will also study and analyse how various economic sectors in Hungary complement each other to create a flourishing investment environment and explore ways to strengthen bilateral cooperation.
