Japanese-Hungarian relations can be best described with two words: outstanding and trouble-free – as established at the Ambassador’s Forum at Ludovika held with the participation of H.E. Junichi Kosuge, Ambassador of Japan to Budapest on 18 May 2016. His Excellency Kosuge’s speech focused on the relationship between the two countries, as well as Japan’s relationship with and the EU and other formations in the region such as the Visegrad Group.

Following the opening remarks made by Dr. Gábor Kovács, Vice-Rector for Education at NUPS, H.E. Kosuge reminded that the Japanese-Hungarian friendship dates back 147 year in history, as the official, diplomatic relations with Japan were established by Austria-Hungary in 1869. The relationship remained active until 1914, and entered a new stage after World War I. The two countries managed to exit the shadow of World War II in 1959: since then the dialogue between Japan and Hungary has been without barriers. Hungary has an embassy in Tokyo, and a honorary consular service in and Osaka, whereas Japan’s embassy is located in Budapest. In addition to the diplomatic relations, the two nations are held together through cultural, economic and scientific bonds. Thanks to the nearly 150 Japanese companies operating in Hungary, Japan is considered as one of the most important Asian investors in the country. Japanese capital is primary attracted through the opportunities in the car industry and electronic sector, leading to the employment of about 28.000 Hungarian citizens.

From the political perspective, Hungary has always been an interesting example for Japan – said H.E. Junich Kosuge reminding that the Hungarian democratic transition processes have served with several lessons for the Asian country. That being said, nowadays the two countries’ relationship ought to be examined in an international context, as it has been determined by the efforts made for common goals such as fighting off terrorism, helping refugees, fighting against poverty and the negative consequences of climate change. In addition to these topics, the current Japanese declarations on economic and strategic cooperation include the peaceful utilization of aerospace, the freedom of shipping, the support for the concepts of territorial sovereignty, the promotion of growth and prosperity, and the advancement of research funding and innovation. Furthermore, His Excellency Kosuge pointed out that although these long-term goals are shared by other countries, it should also be noticed that Japan could still not manage to fully conclude World War II, as there is no peace treaty with the Russian Federation nor with the Republic of Korea, thus “Asia is far behind Europe” in this regard.

As for regional integration, unfortunately there are increasingly difficult processes and increasing dangers in sight. Peaceful settlement is hindered by both the debates concerning the South-China Sea and North Korea’s activity. Japan first and foremost promotes international law and condemns all activities that go against international law while supports peace and the economic development of the region.

The ambassador of the Czech Republic to Budapest, H.E. Juraj Chmiel was the guest of the first Ambassador’s Forum at Ludovika within the academic year 2015/16 held on 30 September 2015. In his opening speech, beginning in Hungarian, His Excellency summarized the programme of Czech Republic who holds the presidency in the Visegrad Group from 1 July 2015 until 30 June 2016.
His Excellency Juraj Chmiel mentioned the thought of fellowship and the enhancement of relations among V4 states as the primary mission in which the International Visegrad Fund enjoys a central role. The main tasks include the countries’ cooperation in energy which is to be realized in accordance with EU directives. The Czech Presidency offers two exclusive conferences dealing with the secure, competitive and sustainable energy market.
Nevertheless, His Excellency also reminded that cooperation is of enormous importance in the area of external relations as well. Firstly, we should open to the countries of the West-Balkans as well as to Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine while strengthening French, German and American relations. Furthermore, the defence policies of the respective V4 states should be synchronized, the importance of which greatly increases in light of the current issue of migration. In addition to practical strategic considerations, cyber security aspects should also be taken into account in the future.
The ambassador emphasized that if the Visegrad countries engage together within the European Union, local political considerations receive more space and regional interests could be realized more effectively. His Excellency also reflected upon the importance of cooperation in the issues of infrastructure and economy, pointing out that in order to increase the success in investments, joint action should be made in the exchange of experiences, the protection of investments and the actions against tax fraud.
The ambassador’s speech was followed by a roundtable discussion with György Varga, Deputy Executive Director of the International Visegrad Fund and Dr. Iván Halász, Head of the Department of European and Comparative Public Law at the Faculty of Public Administration of NUPS. During the conversation, the participants talked about the migration quota system, the obligation for reception and the defence of external EU borders, however, the series of events commemorating the 25th anniversary of the V4 was also discussed.
After the discussions, the event’s host, Dr. Boglárka Koller, Vice-Dean for Scientific and International Affairs at the Faculty of International and European Studies of NUPS invited the guests to the gallery where they could visit the photo exhibition of Václav Hynčík titled “Pilsen, the Royal City – European Capital of Culture 2015”.

The National University of Public Service organized the second Ambassador’s Forum at Ludovika, this time with H.E. Ilan Mor, Ambassador of the State of Israel in Budapest as the guest of honour on the 18th of June 2015. The event series was initiated by NUPS with the aim of establishing a future meeting place and forum of discussions for representatives of diplomacy and academia.

Following the welcome address of Prof. Dr. András Patyi, Rector of NUPS, H.E. Ilan Mor gave a keynote speech titled “EU-Israel Relations: Constructive Dialogue or Two Monologue?” The ambassador made open remarks about the European Union and touched upon – inter alia – the subject of Arab-Israeli relations.

After the presentation, H.E. Ilan Mor, Dr. Erzsébet Nagyné Rózsa, Head of the Department of International Relations and Diplomacy at the Faculty of International and European Studies and Dr. Károly Grúber, former Ambassador (Representative to the PSC) in Brussels discussed the mentioned topics in a roundtable session. Dr. Károly Grúber and H.E. Ilan Mor agreed that the bilateral relations between Hungary and the State of Israel are specifically good, with Hungary currently holding the Chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. According to H.E. Ilan Mor, however, in certain issues the EU and Israel do not have a proper dialogue. The participants of the roundtable discussion also emphasized the importance of common values within bilateral and multilateral relations.

H.E. Ilan Mor pointed out that the security situation of the State of Israel is constantly changing. Dr. Erzsébet Nagyné Rózsa added that the security environment of Hungary is also under change, in that the pressure of migration and the situation in Ukraine forced Hungary to face new challenges. During the Q&A session, H.E. Ilan Mor shortly touched upon the decision of the United States’ Supreme Court in the Jerusalem passport case.

After the roundtable session, the participants of the Forum carried on with their discussion while enjoying a selection of wine and cheese provided by the Embassy of the State of Israel in Budapest. In addition, they were acquainted with examples of Israeli literature through a book exhibition supported by the Embassy.

The Ludovika Hussar Squadron (LHS) was founded by the Sport Association of the National University of Public Service during the Ludovika Festival.

Two occasions explain the foundation of the Squadron. Firstly, the establishment commemorates the 100th anniversary of the First World War that demanded a huge sacrifice in Hungarian lives and through the heroic acts of Hungarian armed forces. Secondly, the University recently moved back to the historical building of Royal Hungarian Academy of Ludovika which used to host the traditional education and training of military officers in the last century. The LHS is wearing the uniform and the weaponry of the 1st Budapest Military Hussar Regiment from 1914. The flag of the Squadron is identical with the flag of Ludovika from 1901 and serves as a memorial flag.

The deed of foundation of LHS was given by dr. András Levente Gál, Honorary Citizen of NUPS and Founder of Ludovika Hussar Squadron to Dr. Gábor Kovács, Vice-Rector for Education at NUPS and President of Sport Association of NUPS. The LHS memorial flag was handed over to Dr. Col. Tibor Horváth, Commander of LHS, for preservation.

Under the deed of foundation of LHS, the aim of the Squadron and its members is to be committed to maintaining the military and equestrian traditions of Ludovika, to contributing to the development and the reputation of the National University of Public Service with their appearance and behaviour as well as to the healthy self- and public esteem of the Hungarian youth who choose national defence, law enforcement or civil service career.

At the ceremony the members of the Squadron marched up on Shagya Arabian horses, a contribution of the Bábolna National Stud.
