Dear Visitor,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the new homepage of the Embassy of Hungary in Seoul. I hope that our homepage and our recently launched Facebook page will help you find useful information about our embassy and my country.

Having arrived in Seoul in September 2013, I presented my credentials to the President of the Republic of Korea on November 22, 2013. Ever since I have been striving to contribute to the further development of our bilateral relations and strengthen the existing close bilateral ties that rest on mutual trust and such common values as freedom, democracy, and human rights. I would also like to make a contribution to our partnership in the increasingly important realm of research and development while also boosting the already intensive trade and investment ties between our two countries.

I have been trying to do my utmost to present the best of Hungarian art, culture, and science in order to increase the Korean public’s awareness of outstanding Hungarian achievements. Furthermore, I have been looking for new ways to intensify valuable people-to-people contacts between Hungarians and Koreans.

As Ambassador also accredited to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, I presented my credentials in Pyeongyang on April 10, 2014. I consider it to be of great importance that Hungary, also as a member state of the European Union, actively support efforts aimed at maintaining peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.

I would like to express my appreciation to my predecessors who have achieved significant results in further intensifying and diversifying our bilateral relationship.

On behalf of my colleagues, I would like to thank you for your interest in Hungary.

Gábor Csaba
