German land Saxony's Prime Minister Stanislaw Tillich congratulated PM Grindeanu on the decision not to resign office


German land Saxony's Prime Minister Stanislaw Tillich has congratulated his Romanian counterpart Sorin Grindeanu on the latter's decision not to resign office. 

'Congratulations on your last evening's decision [not to step down as Romania's prime minister]," Tillich told Grindeanu at the beginning of an official meeting at the Romanian Government House in Bucharest according to a video posted on Thursday on the web site of the Romanian Government. 

Grindeanu replied that it is not easy, but he had worse times.

Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu discussed on Thursday, at Victoria Palace, with a delegation headed by German land Saxony's Prime Minister Stanislaw Tillich about the development of bilateral economic relations. 

According to a government press release, German land Saxony's Prime Minister is paying a visit to Romania, accompanied by an economic delegation interested in establishing relations with economic partners in our country. 

The head of the Romanian Executive has highlighted the good economic position Romania has at this point, registering in the first quarter of the year a 5.7 pct increase as compared to the same period last year, "the best in the whole European Union." 

"We want to keep this pace and keep Romania stable and in the right direction," Grindeanu said, as quoted in the release. The Prime Minister has said that Romania needs to "rev up the engines" with regard to the absorption of European funds and investments. 

Regarding the relationship with Germany, a "strategic one", Sorin Grindeanu stressed that the dialogue with Germany's federal states is "very important" for Romania. 

The head of the Executive also referred to the Romanian-German collaboration in the field of education, to the tradition of the good relations of the Romanians with the Saxon community, but also the Romanian community settled in Saxony. 

Prime Minister Grindeanu also remarked that Romania will be the guest of honour at the Book Fair in 2018, in Leipzig, Saxony. 

In his turn, German land Saxony's Prime Minister Stanislaw Tillich underlined the interest of the delegation investors in finding business partners in Romania. 

"We want to invest where there is available workforce and opportunities for economic development," Stanislaw Tillich said, stressing that Romania has a well-prepared human resource. 

The meeting at Victoria Palace was also attended by the Secretary of State in the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Dan Neculaescu, and Germany's Ambassador in Bucharest, Cord Meier-Klodt.

Grindeanu on Thursday was scheduled to meet the UK Secretary of Defence Michael Fallon at the Government House, as well as Chairman of the German Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations Wolfgang Buchele in the early after-noon. 

On Wednesday evening, he announced he will not step down unless the President appoints a new prime minister that is a member of the Social Democratic Party (PSD)
