Andrzej Duda was speaking at a news conference following one-on-one talks with his visiting Hungarian counterpart Janos Ader in the south-central Polish city of Kielce.
Duda told reporters he and Ader met on the eve of Polish-Hungarian Friendship Day to discuss bilateral and regional ties as well as cooperation within the European Union and NATO, in addition to a range of infrastructure and energy projects.
Meanwhile, Hungary's Ader praised Poland for its strong economic growth and low inflation and unemployment. He also said that Poland was his country's fourth-largest trading partner.
Poland and Hungary are close allies in the European Union. They also work together as part of a regional cooperation platform known as the Visegrad Group.
Polish-Hungarian Friendship Day, established by the parliaments of both countries and observed every year on March 23, has been marked alternately in Poland and Hungary since 2007.
