Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Hungary in Riga. Our intention is to provide you information about the development of the Hungarian-Latvian relations included political visits, cooperation and opportunities in bilateral trade and investment, presence and presentation of Hungarian culture in Latvia, people to people contacts building tighter connections between our societies, function of our consulate and its services. The basis of the Hungarian-Latvian relations is set by our alliance in the European Union, NATO and other international organisations. Our joint interest, values and membership in these organisations ensure good basis and many platforms for excellent cooperation. Bilateral visits and consultations on political and technical level between our Governments and Parliaments are regular. The history of our countries crossed (coincided) several times in the past, therefore – I believe –we easily understand each other. At the same time constant dialogue, openness for each other’s detailed positions and their reasoning are needed to have well-founded analysis in the rapidly changing world. The European single market ensures clear framework for Hungarian businesses in finding new trade and investment opportunities in Latvia. Our Embassy is ready and willing to assist their intentions. Meanwhile our aim is to attract investors form Latvia to Hungary which offers excellent conditions for investments. We hope the number of Latvians tourists visiting our wonderful country will continue to grow also in the coming years. Cultural cooperation is an excellent opportunity to better know each other. We welcome all of you at the colourful Hungarian cultural events organised by our Embassy. Please, visit regularly our website and follow our Facebook page. With you proposal, questions you are always welcomed to contact us. You are always welcome to contact us and send your questions or suggestions. .
