Beijing - On June 23, 2017, CSA held the first meeting with Hungarian Neurological Society (HNS) in Beijing during CSA&TISC 2017. Vice President Anding Xu and Visiting HNS President László Csiba attended the meeting.   


Officials from CSA and HNS will explore mutual cooperation opportunities at a Hungary symposium titled "Hungarian Stroke Society Conference" (HSSC). The two sides agreed to sign a memorandum on further cooperation during the HSSC. That will be the first MoU document CSA would sign with a medical scientific society of European country.  


CSA Secretary General Caiyun Wang said she hoped the CSA&TISC 2017 would throw more light on the essence of the Belt and Road Initiative and unleash the potential for cooperation between CSA and Hungarian medical & pharmaceutical field.  

Wang described the CSA&TISC 2017 as a bridge connecting China and Eastern Europe, making it a gateway to Europe with huge development potential. CSA, she said, envisages cooperation in scientific research and academic exchanges, among other areas.
She underlined that young Chinese scientists for stroke research funded by Hungarian-Chinese Scientific Cooperation Foundation which is hosted by CSA and sponsored by Gedeon Richter,  had amounted to 15 since 2015.
In the morning of June 23rd 2017, special representative Ildiko Nagy of Hungarian Embassy in China addressed the opening ceremony of CSA&TISC 2017 and honored 5 young stroke researchers making notable contributions to today’s understanding of stroke on behalf of Hungarian-Chinese Scientific Cooperation Foundation.
Ms. Nagy pointed Hungary is the first country in Europe to officially sign an MoU relating to China’s “One Belt, One Road” strategy, emphasizing that “Hungary will continue to expand pharmaceutical cooperation, actively carry out scientific research cooperation, and promote bilateral pragmatic cooperation to a higher level.”
