Hungary’s National Economy Minister Mihály Varga and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, signed a cooperation agreement in Budapest today regarding tourism, on behalf of Hungaryʼs National Economy Ministry (NGM) and Egyptʼs Ministry of Tourism.

Varga noted that Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air is scheduled to launch a weekly flight from Budapest to Hurghada on May 16, and the minister also expects this to boost tourism.
