Budapest: Indian students seeking quality education and safe environment may now find a new destination in Hungary with its Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai inviting them to pursue various courses offered by it, amidst continued attacks on the community in Australia.

"This (Hungary) could be a possible destination for a lot of Indian students who can come here for good quality education in a safe environment...and this is what the Prime Minister has offered," Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma said after his meeting with Bajnai.

However, when asked if this offer was made in the backdrop of the situation in Australia, Sharma, who led a business delegation of industry body FICCI during his visit here, said: "Without going into that I will only say this is a very peaceful country."

The minister also said that during his visit he has seen that Hungary has strong educational institutions offering courses in science and technology, engineering and medical science.

In recent past, Australia has witnessed a number of assaults on Indians, specially students, allegedly motivated by racism.

On India not recognising the courses offered by Hungarian educational institutions, senior Indian officials said the two countries were working on giving recognition to some educational institutions here.
