Bilateral trade between Hungary and India has changed remarkably since early the 1990s. According to the Central Statistical Office of Hungary trade with India reached US$ 595.6 million in 2014 and is showing signs of growth. This is due to various Hungarian investment projects that include agro-foods, capital goods innovation, real estate, renewable energy and tourism. 

The increase exchange of delegations between the nations has expanded the commercial and economic cooperation in education, science and technology, defence health and agriculture. The people to people interactions have led growing friendly and harmonious ties and a fair amount of goodwill as the countries head into a new decade of diplomatic relations.

Cultural cooperation is one of the significant pillars of Hungary’s relationship with India. The Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre New Delhi at the Embassy in New Delhi is an iconic symbol of the cultural relations. The Centre provides a wide range of free information, exhibits, events, educational services, and programs and cultural events.
On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of its Hungarian premiere, the most famous operetta in the world, composer Imre Kálmán’s The Csárdás Princess were featured in a performance in New Delhi Habitat Centre on 25th March 2016.
The program was organized by the Embassy of Hungary and the Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre with the collaboration of the Balassi Institute and of the First World War Centennial Committee of Hungary.
It seems activities and growing interactions between the India and Hungary on political, economic and cultural arenas are deepening and laying a foundation for the development of the friendly and mutually beneficial cooperation.
