Ambassador Brummell: after Brexit, UK wants to develop direct relations with the European countries, including Romania
The Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Paul Brummell, stated on Tuesday, in Constanta, that, after Brexit, his country wants to develop direct relations with the European countries, including Romania, to which it is bound by a rich history since the 19th century.
On June 23, 2016, British citizens voted for the exit from the European Union, Brummel said, adding that this implies merely leaving the EU, not Europe, adding that the UK remains a European country and now its goal is to develop direct relations with European countries and particularly with Romania, to which they are bound by a rich history,
In his speech at the opening of the seminar Exporting is GREAT, Brummell reiterated the old historical ties of the United Kingdom with Dobrogea that marked the evolution and development of this region, since the early of 19th century, when a company from the United Kingdom built the railway between Cernavoda and Constanta.
"Exporting is GREAT" is organized by the British-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and the Department for International Trade of the Embassy in Bucharest in collaboration with the Constanta Chamber for Commerce, Industry, Navigation and Agriculture (CCINA).
