Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Hungary in Accra!
Our aim is to provide information on Hungary and Ghana, to give practical information on matters affecting our citizens.
The Government of Hungary recognized the great potential the African continent holds, therefore decided to launch a new strategy entitled “Opening to the South”.
Within the new framework of our foreign policy Africa gained a prominent place. We intend to strengthen our presence in Sub-Saharan Africa by opening new diplomatic missions and economic representations, as well as intensifying our bilateral political dialogue.
As a first milestone of this initiative we reopened our Embassy in Accra in April 2016 after 30 years. My letter of credence was handed over to President John Dramani Mahama on 3 October.
A priority task of our Embassy is to foster mutually beneficial trade and investment opportunities, just as to strenghten the existing relations. Renewable energy, water management, information technology, waste management, construction industry, agricultre and food processing business opportunities are huge, so in the coming years our task is to stimulate the exchange of information and to deepen the cooperation between the Ghanaian and Hungarian companies. Allow me to emphasise the importance of the cooperation between our countries in the field of education, scholarship programmes, personal relations on both individual and institutional level. We also believe that sport can form a bridge between Europe and Africa, therefore to boost the cooperation in the field of sports is of key importance as well. Our Embassy is going to be accredited to the following West-African countries soon: Togo, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Gambia. Should you need any information or assistance, our Embassy is glad to be at your service.
