Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto and BYD President and CEO Fang Quanfu left the Foreign Ministry building together. The Foreign Minister signed from the Puskas Stadium with the BYD president soon after.

Our colleague snapped a photo of Fang Xuanfu, president and CEO of BYD, which built the battery factory in Szeged, leaving the building in front of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Shortly after the photo was taken, it went live on Peter Szijjarto's Facebook page. This revealed that the Chinese businessman, whose fortune is estimated at $13.8 billion, came to Hungary to personally deliver the first BYD electric cars sold here to Hungarian customers at the Puskás Arena. The BYD President welcomed the attendees in Hungarian and then thanked the Hungarian government for its support and cooperation.

Then Peter Szijjarto said that this is the first time that the President of BYD has visited Hungary. According to the minister, the green automobile revolution is the only element that is constantly evolving in the turbulent global economy. According to Szijjártó, there are definitely two winners in the new sector:

BYD and Hungary.

Szijjarto also mentioned that it is the first destination for Chinese investments in Central Europe, and that most of the investments have come to our country from China in the past two years. After short speeches, the foreign minister and the president and CEO of the automaker presented gifts to BYD's first domestic customers.

And based on photos taken by our colleague, Laszlo Putka, mayor of Szeged, home of the BYD plant, also participated in the pre-ceremony consultation, but did not speak at the event.
