Hungary


Diplomatic relations between Brazil and Hungary were established in 1927 and, in recent years, have gained new momentum, with the expansion of trade and intensification of high level visits. Cooperation in the multilateral sphere has also been intensified. In 2011, the Hungarian Government released a strategic planning document that, for the first time, includes Brazil among its foreign policy priorities.

The inclusion of Hungarian universities in the Science Without Borders Program represented a milestone: Hungary was the first country from Central Europe to join the program and it has become one of the main destinations for the Brazilian students of the program. 

Relations also benefit from an expressive Hungarian community, estimated in about 100 thousand people, mostly concentrated in the state of São Paulo.
