Representatives of the U.S. Department of Commerce visit Romania

 Romania can become an investment hub for U.S. companies, as it has all the necessary capabilities to support large-scale projects, plus the benefit of a favorable geographical position and also of skilled human capital, considers Economy Minister Radu Oprea.

The official met on Friday with the delegation of the U.S. Department of Commerce led by Cynthia Aragon, Executive Director for the Advocacy Center, to discuss the strengthening of bilateral cooperation and of the Romania - U.S. strategic partnership through joint government projects, as well as through partnerships between the two countries' business sectors.
