On August 12, 2015 BUCE head office played host to a meeting with Bertalan Senpetery, Counselor for Trade and Economy at the Embassy of the Republic of Hungary in the Republic of Belarus.

The sides discussed prospects of using BUCE’s potential for boosting trade between Belarus and Hungary as well as collaboration in bringing more Hungarian companies to exchange trading platforms. At present 10 Hungarian enterprises are accredited at BUCE and use the exchange mechanism to buy Belarusian sawn timber and plywood. Besides, there are plans to establish closer cooperation in information exchange and strengthen contacts between business communities of the two countries. These issues will be on the agenda of the next session of the Intergovernmental Belarusian-Hungarian Commission for Economic Cooperation scheduled for September 16-17 in Budapest (Hungary).
