China and CEECs all have long histories and splendid cultures, which provide a sound foundation for collaboration in various areas such as economic and trade, culture, technology, and society. China has a huge potential market, while the CEECs, although small, are in urgent need of infrastructure reconstruction. Some Chinese high-technology enterprises, such as ZTE and Huawei, have already established branch offices in Hungary. They have thus made Chinese first-class communication technology accessible to Hungarian people and so made their lives more convenient.

István Íigyártó made particular mention of the importance of cultural exchanges. In recent years, more Chinese art forms have gone global, so attracting great attention and gaining acclaim among foreign audiences. Hungarian people are especially adept at music as it plays a main role in their lives, and Hungarian children grow up amid an ethos of singing and dancing. Music, therefore, has the power to draw the hearts of the two nations even closer. Moreover, Hungarian audiences delight in watching Chinese historical dramas, martial arts movies, and contemporary films. Ina recent years Traditional Chinese Medicine has also gained a strong foothold in the Hungarian market.

István Íigyártó noted that there are no cultural boundaries among different nations. In addition, no matter whether elites or common people, all can enjoy the vitality and color of multiple cultures.

"We should consider the common people's favorite art forms. The specific areas they most love are our greatest concern, and could dramatically enhance in-depth understandings between our two countries." István Íigyártó said.
