Both countries are in the process of enhancing their bilateral and economic relations. In 2012, Hungary stands at the 31st source of imports for Malaysia. In 1993, both Hungary and Malaysia signed a document for the promotion and protection of investments in Kuala Lumpur, the agreement to avoid double taxation and prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to taxes on income also coming into effect on the same year. Before the economic crisis, the total bilateral trade amounted to U$730 million and dropped substantially to U$400–450 million during the economic crisis. Continuous efforts have been undertaken to reach pre-crisis levels and in 2011, it has increased to U$570 million.
