Hungary names Bandung consul

BANDUNG (JP): Hungary has appointed businessman Atilla Kamory as its honorary consul to Bandung, West Java.

Hungarian Ambassador to Indonesia Tamas Lajos said the West Java capital produced goods such as shoes and textiles which were a major part of Indonesia's exports to his country.

"Indonesia's exports to Hungary per year amount to more than US$100 million, mostly in garments, textile, shoes and also spices," Lajos said after installing Kamory on Monday evening at a ceremony in Bandung. (25)
