“Eastern Opening” Meets “Belt and Road”: State-Backed Narratives of Global Order in China-Hungary Relations

Sebestyén Hompot

The Hungarian government’s “Eastern Opening” foreign policy has not fundamentally changed its EU-oriented economic strategy but Budapest and Beijing increasingly see each other as useful partners for supporting their own narratives of the newly emerging global order. Several Hungary-based think tanks, supported by the Hungarian and Chinese governments, promote the vision of an “Eurasian Era” that is overtaking the “Atlantic Era” of American and Western European dominance.
