Annual trade between Slovakia and Hungary represents approximately €5 billion with a moderate surplus for Slovakia of about €450 million.

“There is eminent interest in this mutual relationship between the two countries continuing,” Minister Jahnátek said. He continued by saying that the countries today need much closer contact than they have had to date. SITA
