Since its establishment, Hungarian Water Partnership Nonprofit Kft. has been a member of the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (HCCI). It all started with the election of Mr Róbert Forintos, HWP co-chairman, as chairman of the Hungarian-Vietnamese Business Council years ago. This year, in February HWP further expanded its role in the activities of the HCCI, when Mr Károly Kovács, President of the partnership accepted the invitation to take over the presidency of the Africa Section. Subsequently, in March, the managing company of the HWP, the Hungarian Water Partnership Nonprofit Ltd. joined the Africa Division, the Middle East and North Africa Division, the Central Asia Division, and the Western Balkans Division, as well as the Hungarian-Egyptian Business Council and the Hungarian-Vietnamese Business Council. Through increased participation in the activities of the HCCI, HWP expects not only to obtain more useful information about foreign markets, but also to increase its business contacts.
