The reopening ceremony took place at the Accra residence of the Hungarian Ambassador to Ghana.

Hungary had earlier said it was exploring the renewal energy, water management, IT, waste management, agriculture and food processing sectors in Ghana,  in order to build strong investment projects in the  country.

Ghana’s Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Minister, Hanna Tetteh, said at the ceremony that: “What this reopening of the embassy means is that in the first instance, Hungarian citizens resident in Ghana will now have an embassy to interact with to be able deal with their processes, which I know they are all happy about.”

“Another thing is that it gives opportunity for Ghanaians who want to take advantage of opportunities in Hungary to also have a direct point of contact instead of having to go all the way to Abuja to go and engage the Hungarian embassy.

“Then it also gives the opportunity for the embassy to promote what it sees as opportunities for the private sector but also to promote opportunities for Ghanaians in Hungary. And, so, all through it, it enhances the relationship and that is what the reopening of this stands for,” Ms Tetteh added.

Hungary, in 1987, closed its Embassy in Ghana due to the collapse of the Soviet Union and focused and focused on European Integration.
