Interview with Ferenc Kumin ,
Consul General of Hungary in New York

As the head of Hungarian diplomacy, you have been serving in New York for more than two and a half years. How do you assess this period?
– When I accepted this assignment and moved here with my family in August 2013, I had many expectations but never thought that I would have so many duties. I would have never dreamed that I would have to be so actively involved in the daily tasks. By that I mean trade and investment matters and the affairs of Hungarians living here; these are all extremely important to me as is my representation of the Hungarian Jewish community living here. I need to maintain contacts and be part of an incredibly vibrant life; as well as spreading Hungarian culture. That is a very complex and time-consuming task. Before moving here, in discussion with friends we concluded that, regardless of New York not being the capital city of the United States, it still offers so much; for example, one of the largest Hungarian communities is in New Jersey.
