Romania-Estonia economic forum proposed during ForMin Corlatean's visit to Tallinn


The organization of an economic forum dedicated to identifying cooperation opportunities between Romanian and Estonian business people was suggested on Friday during the meeting between Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean and his Estonian counterpart Urmas Paet, on the third day of the Baltic tour of the Romanian official.

The forum should be dedicated to identifying cooperation opportunities between business people of the two countries, the Foreign Ministry said in a release. The following areas of interest for economic cooperation were identified: IT & C, tourism, energy, agriculture, the industry of machine-tools and equipment manufacturing.

The two ministers also agreed to set in place a regular consultation mechanism on issues related to European and strategic affairs.

The talks focused on strengthening the EU's relations with the Eastern Neighborhood and on developments in the Eastern Partnership. The two officials also expressed their support for the achievement of ambitious results at the Vilnius Summit due in November.

The officials also pronounced for the continuation of the EU enlargement process, with a view to strengthening stability and security in the region. In the context, they reaffirmed their countries' support for the European integration efforts of Western Balkan states, and the importance of a clear European perspective for the Republic of Moldova was also underscored.

Corlatean reiterated Romania's goal of joining the Schengen in the next period and thanked for Estonia's constant support to this aim.

Having in view Estonia's participation in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and Romania's being part of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region, the two ministers reviewed convergence points and the possible interactions between the two EU macro-regional strategies.

The Romanian Minister also met with the Chairman of the Estonian Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Marko Mihkelson, with the two voicing appreciation for the very good bilateral relations.

During the visit to the NATO Cyber Defence Center in Tallinn, Minister Corlatean expressed interest in strengthening cooperation and appreciation for the center's contribution to developing NATO's cyber policy.
