September 14th 2010: Tony Kez gives a presentation at the Hungarian Parliament

A presentation called "Hungary and the world today" was presented to the Hungarian-Canadian Friendship Group of the Interparliamentary Union of the Hungarian National Assembly.

The presentation is about the commercial opportunities between Hungary, Canada and the United States. It points out that even though Canada and the US are major investors in Hungary, it has not taken full advantage of these relationships. Commercially speaking Hungary could benefit much more from the North American market and the Hungarian Canadian Chamber of Commerce is ready to help with this endeavour. The final message was that

Hungary has to learn to sell itself.
