Vietnam and Hungary set up diplomatic ties on February 3, 1950. Hungary provided Vietnam with valuable support and assistance during the latter’s national defence and construction.
Over the past years, bilateral relations have seen very positive developments, with the exchange of delegations, especially at the high level, taking place regularly through the channels of parties, administrations, national assemblies, and localities. The two sides also have had effective cooperation at multilateral forums, particularly at the United Nations and within the framework of the Asia – Europe Economic Forum.
Hungary has considered Vietnam the most important partner in Southeast Asia. Over the past years, their economic and trade ties have increased sharply, with two-way trade exceeding USD 338 million in the firt five month of 2020.
As of January 2020, Hungary had 19 valid projects in Vietnam with total registered capital of USD 69.94 million, ranking 53rd out of 135 countries and territories investing in the country.
Besides, the two countries have made strides in cooperation on law-making, justice, national defence-security, health care, education-training and partnership between localities.

To date, the relationship between Hungary – Vietnam has lasted for 70 years (1950 – 2020). What could better demonstrate the strength of the relationship than willingness to help each other, especially when the entire world is facing a truly unprecedented situation arising out of coronavirus.
In April, the Vietnam–Hungary Friendship Association has donated 10,500 face masks to Hungary in an assistance to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Vietnamese community in Hungary has also joined hands with local authorities in the fight against the pandemic. Medical face masks, cloth masks, and protective gloves have been mobilised among overseas Vietnamese in Hungary to present to local hospitals and health centres.
In addition to the charitable activities initiated by the association, many Vietnamese people across Hungary have also supported the Hungarian authorities and people in the fight against COVID-19, which was noted and appreciated by local media and residents./.
